Abstract: We briefly review the techniques of dispersive Fourier transform spectroscopy (DFTS), polarised oblique incidence reflection spectroscopy and attenuated total reflection (ATR) spectroscopy, and discuss applications of these techniques to a variety of solids, including alkali halide crystals, pseudo-displacive ferroelectrics, and bulk and low-dimensional semiconductors.
Keywords: DFTS, ATR, Polarised oblique incidence reflectivity, Ionic solids, Ferroelectrics, Semiconductors.
Acknowledgments: I am greatly indebted to Professor D H Martin of Queen Mary College, University of London, who first introduced me to the topic of far infrared spectroscopy of solids many years ago, and to all of my co-authors in the publications cited below, without whom this work would not have been possible.
