vapor barrier between concrete slabs

I was wondering can I place a 1/2 inch styrofoam or a 10 mil plastic vapour barrier between my existing basement floor (concrete) and a newly poured concrete slab.

First, I think the concrete guys will need more info. How thick are both slabs? Intended use? Heating above, in the new slab, or not? The foam and the 10 mil are not the same animals. Foam is somewhat vapor open; 10 mil is not.

Is the new concrete slab on top of the existing concrete floor - or being poured adjacent to it?
