The potential utility of multi-pass Fabry-Perot spectroscopy in the study of polymers is demonstrated. A triple-pass system is described and the performance is discussed. Preliminary results in three areas are presented: (1) a study of anisotropy in oriented poly(methyl methacrylate); (2) hypersonic viscoelastic behaviour of poly(propylene oxide) and poly(dimethyl siloxane); (3) the effect of crosslinking in poly(dimethyl siloxane) on the high frequency elastic properties and on phnonon absorption.
