A number of thin dielectric films deposited onto aluminated glass substrates and onto the materials transparent in the IR range (silicon, KRS-5 and CsI) were investigated using infrared transmission and reflection-absorption techniques. The application of these techniques to thin dielectric films at normal and oblique incidence of light allows the observation of both the longitudinal and transverse optical phonons. The longitudinal (LO)-transverse (TO) optical phonons splitting is analysed in terms of a dispersive local field effect. It has been shown that the results of LO-TO splitting obtained from dispersive local field effect are in a good agreement with the results obtained from the dynamical theory of crystalline lattices.
