Werner Hickel, Wolfgang Knoll: Determination of refractive index and thickness of thin layers. BASF Aktiengesellschaft, Keil & Weinkauf, August 17, 1993: US05237392 (13 worldwide citation)

The refractive index and thickness of ultrathin layers<1 .mu.m in thickness are determined by recording the layers, which have been applied to a solid support, by surface plasmon microscopy as a function of the angle of incidence of the incident laser beam, the method making it possible to determine ...

Peter Sluka, Dierk Beyer, Helmut Ringsdorf, Wolfgang Knoll: Process for producing a surface coated with amino groups. Boehringer Mannheim, Nikaido Marmelstein Murray & Oram, August 3, 1999: US05932296 (13 worldwide citation)

A surface coated with amino groups is produced by applying a polymerizable amine to a surface by means of a pulsed plasma. The coated surfaces obtained thereby have a high density of amino groups so that a specific binding phase can be obtained by covalently binding a partner of a specific binding p ...
