Theoretical Background For Data Analysis

In this chapter, we have briefly discussed the theory required for quantitative analysis of our experimental data. These include height-height correlation functions which are extracted from the Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) data, the Parratt formalism used to fit the X-Ray Reflectivity (XRR) data and obtain electron density profiles along sample depth and the theory of normal coordinates, which is used for quantitative analysis of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy data to get information regarding bonding, coordination and conformation in molecules. we have also briefly discussed the useful relation regarding Near Edge XRay Absorption Fine Structure spectroscopic data analysis to obtain spatial distribution of bonds in our systems.
