Abstract
A semi-cylindrical lens in Kretschmann geometry combined with a flow cell was designed for a commercial rotating compensator ellipsometer to perform internal reflection spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements, while allowing the use of multiple angles of incidence. A thin glass slide covered with a gold film was mounted between the half-cylindrical lens and a small-volume flow cell ensuring an improved sensitivity for protein adsorption experiments. The performance of the system was investigated depending on the angle of incidence, wavelength range and thickness of the gold films for surface plasmon resonance enhanced ellipsometric measurements, and a sensitivity increase was revealed compared to ellipsometric measurements with standard flow cells, depending on the measurement parameters and configuration. The sensitivity increase was demonstrated for fibrinogen adsorption.
