Abstract

An optical technique is described for detecting and measuring thicknesses of adsorbed films with subangstrom sensitivity. The technique relies on optical interference from an antireflecting thin-film structure that is predeposited on a transparent cell window: the reflectivity of the window depends linearly on the thickness of the molecular layer adsorbed from the gas in the cell.
