The physics of the ice crystal surface and its interaction with adsorbates are not only of fundamental interest but also of considerable importance to terrestrial and planetary chemistry. Yet the atomic-level structure of even the pristine ice surface at low temperature is still far from well understood. This computational study focuses on the pattern of(More)
Infrared-visible sum frequency generation (SFG) has seen increasing usage as a surface probe, particularly for liquid interfaces since they are amenable to few alternate probes. Interpreting the SFG data to arrive at a molecular-level configuration on the surface, however, remains a challenge. This paper reports a technique for analyzing and interpreting(More)
A new computational scheme is presented for calculation of sum frequency generation (SFG) spectra, based on the exciton model for OH bonds. The scheme is applied to unified analysis of the SFG spectra in the OH-stretch region of the surfaces of ice, liquid water, and acid solution. A significant role of intermolecularly coupled collective modes is pointed(More)
In recent years, sum-frequency generation (SFG) has been used to investigate numerous interfaces including aqueous interfaces. A longstanding challenge to interpretation of the SFG results, along with the related aqueous-solution infrared and Raman spectra, is a lack of connection between features in the broad hydrogen-bonded region and molecular-level(More)
Sum frequency generation spectroscopy has been used to investigate the hydrogen-bonded region of single-crystal, hexagonal ice in the temperature range of 113-178 K. The temperature and polarization dependences of the signal are used in conjunction with a recent theoretical model to suggest an interpretation of the bluest and reddest of the hydrogen-bonded(More)
Many interfacial studies on solid surfaces, for example, quartz/water, assume that a standard cleaning procedure regenerates the surface reproducibly. In the reported work, the results of two surface specific techniques, sum frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy, show that the effects of prolonged exposure to Nanopure water and(More)
