A measurement technique based on ellipsometry performed under conditions of total internal reflection is presented here. This technique is called total internal reflection ellipsometry (TIRE). When extended with the surface plasmon resonance effect, TIRE becomes a powerful tool for monitoring protein adsorption on thin metal films. A brief description of TIRE is presented here together with some examples of measurement system setups. Two examples of applications are included, followed by a short presentation of possible future applications of TIRE.
