The Fourier transform infrared/micro-attenuated total reflectance (FTIR/mATR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and electronic absorption properties of thin tungsten oxide films are characterized. Thin films of tungsten oxide (100-500Å) deposited on SiO2 exhibit a different orientation or structure than thicker films. A p-polarized longitudinal optical (LO) mode at 970 cm-1 occurs in all ATR spectra of WO3 thin films and is one of the strongest IR bands in the spectra. The spectroscopic properties of tungsten oxide films are characterized as a function of substrate and heat treatment.
