Orange is the New Infrared

The CLS Mid-IR beamline, in collaboration with infrared beamlines at SOLEIL and Elettra, has begun developing open-source spectral data processing and analysis software tools building on the Orange multivariate data analysis, visualization and mining suite.

Mid Infrared Spectromicroscopy (Mid-IR) 01B1-1


The Mid Infrared Spectromicroscopy beamline provides a state-of-the-art Fourier Transform IR spectrometer and microscope to supply diffraction-limited spatial resolution to an ever-widening range of infrared spectroscopy experiments. Research and development will explore new experiments and re-examine existing techniques by applying the advantages of high brightness infrared synchrotron light.
