  • ATR experiment;
  • geometry of multireflection ATR element;
  • ATR and reference reflector, substituted with facet reflectance;
  • actual spectrum “amplified” through facet reflection;
  • beam alignment on multiple reflection ATR


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Multiple Reflection Attenuated Total Reflection (ATR)

  • Facet Reflections

  • Beam Spread and the Angle of Incidence

  • Effect of Facet Shape

  • Beam Spread and the Number of Reflections in Multiple Reflection ATR

  • Effect of Beam Alignment on Multiple Reflection ATR

  • Change in the Refractive Index of the Sample due to Concentration Change
