The ellipsometric characterization of a layer-by-layer electrostatically self-assembled multilayer of polyphenol oxidase and alkaline phosphatase with the polycation poly(dimethyldiallylammonium chloride) built on an immunologie layer formed by immunoglobulin G (IgG) and glucose oxidase-conjugated anti-IgG (IgG-GOD) on glassy carbon is reported. The step-by-step evolution of the ψ-Δ ellipsometric angles was followed during film growth. Two optical models, named the three-layer film model and reorganization film model, were employed and found suitable for ellipsometric data interpretation. A comparative analysis of film optical properties, film thickness, and ellipsometric mass assessed from both models is also presented.
