(•) The thickness of the polystyrene films, determined using the QCM, vs the polystyrene concentration; (O) the thickness of the polystyrene films determined using a rotating ellipsometer. (Refs. 22 and 23) The straight line is a least square fit to the data. The thickness determined by the two methods are consistent, demonstrating that QCM can be used as a simple and convenient method for characterizing the thickness of polymer films prepared from solutions.
