Abstract

A series of zirconium coordination polymers was investigated. The surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy (SPS) method was utilized primarily to investigate the self-assembly, adsorption properties, and film homogeneity of these layers. The surface plasmon resonance curve is determined by measuring the reflected intensity as a function of incident angle and resonance corresponding to a minimum in the measured reflectivity. Analysis of the curve displacement yields the optical thickness of the adsorbed film. Unique determination of the geometric thickness is not possible, but relies upon an assumed value for the film refractive index.
