Abstract : A model is developed for the changes in the transmission and reflection properties of an interface accompanying adsorption which takes into account explicitly the microscopic roughness characteristics of the interface. Approximate equations are derived from this model and applied successfully to data obtained for the adsorption of various gases onto vacuum deposited silver films. (Modified author abstract)
