Abstract

Modeling of the interfacial region of command surface system was successfully achieved by means of construction of a molecular hybrid by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method. Multilayers of the hybrid film allowed time course observation of the orientational changes under continuous illumination in a satisfactory accuracy. This approach was found to be quite useful for elucidating the process of local molecular motions and their cooperative behavior at the interface by the spectroscopic method.
