TIME-RESOLVED SPECTROELECTROCHEMISTRY WITH IRSWEEP
Dual comb IR spectroscopy for time resolved spectroscopy
Oct. 21, 2020
A dual infrared frequency comb spectrometer with heterodyne detection has been used to perform time-resolved electrochemical attenuated total reflectance surface-enhanced infrared absorption spectroscopy (ATR-SEIRAS). In collaboration with the Canadian Light Source and IRsweep, the desorption of a monolayer of a pyridine derivative with 10 μs time resolution and a detection limit of 5% of a monolayer was demonstrated. The applications of the method are potentially immense for the study of short lived adsorbed species during electrocatalysis.
