Water interfaces play key roles in many disciplines. Understanding of their structures and properties at the molecular level is however still lacking, but is likely with recent development of Infrared-visible sum-frequency spectroscopy (SFS). Being highly surface-specific, SFS is the only technique that can yield vibrational spectra for water interfaces, thus providing their structural information. It can also be used to probe ultrafast interfacial water dynamics.
