A series of application studies of infrared multiple-angle incidence resolution spectrometry (IR-MAIRS) have been reported since it was first proposed as a unique technique for analyzing molecular orientation in thin films on an optically transparent substrate, and both expected and unexpected benefits of IR-MAIRS have been revealed. In this review, cutting-edge application studies are summarized systematically, and the principle of MAIRS is explained from a new point of view.
