Paper Abstract

A series of experiments is presented in which a Bomem DA8 FT spectrometer is used as the main analytic instrument to clarify different effects in materials research. Our applications of the instrument range from absorbance measurements in semiconducting materials to reflectance measurements on superconducting thin films. Effects such as the change in optical absorbance for C60 films are observed and confirmed by transport measurements. The results of ion implantation processes on boron carbide (B4C) can be monitored by spectral measurements and indicate that the mechanical properties of the second hardest material, after diamond, can be adequately modified for easier machining.
