In this work a complex experimental setup is described which was developed by connecting an ultra-high vacuum multi-technique surface analysis system and a sum frequency generation vibrational spectrometer. This arrangement provides a unique environment to study interfaces under in situ conditions by a combination of complementary techniques. Preliminary results of CO adsorption experiments on gold and iron oxide thin layers grown on gold are presented as application examples of the experimental setup.
