A new objective lens for grazing angle FT-IR microscopy provides a means for the infrared analysis of monomolecular films in small (25 X 25 micrometers ) areas. Conventional grazing incidence reflection spectroscopy is an established technology for detecting and analyzing thin surface films on metals or highly reflecting materials. The grazing incidence objective extends these techniques to microscopic areas. Applications of grazing angle FT-IR microscopy (GAM) are illustrated by exemplar analyses. The analyses of thin film lubricants and contaminants are specially important.
