Diamond OTEs offer the possibility of sensitive, reproducible, and stable spectroelectrochemical measurements in both the UV-Vis and IR regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The optical and electrochemical responses are reproducible from batch to batch and stable during anodic and cathodic polarization in aggressive chemical environments. Optical transparencies of ca.50% between 300 and 900 nm and greater than 50% below 1500 cm-1 can be achieved with thin films possessing low electrical resistivity.
