The study of thin film molecular architectures is an increasingly important endeavor with respect to the development and characterization of materials ranging from liquid crystalline displays to receptor-based biosensors. Here we describe an apparatus capable of simultaneously acquiring broadband spectroscopic and electrochemical information on molecularly thin films deposited on a transparent electrode surface through a multiple internal reflection geometry. To demonstrate the capabilities of this system, the spectroelectrochemical behavior of a single, neutral copper phthalocyanine bilayer was evaluated.
