  LINAC Upgrade Ongoing

The Bruker endstation is optimized for high-brightness, diffraction-limited spectromicroscopy with synchrotron infrared radiation.


  Normal Operations

The Agilent endstation is optimized for high spatial resolution, large field of view chemical infrared imaging.


  Normal Operations

The IRsweep endstation is optimized for high signal-to-noise, time-resolved spectroscopy measurements with microsecond time resolution.

Off-line experiments are running on the Agilent and IRsweep! Our LINAC upgrade is ongoing.

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 experimental configurations. Research and development will explore new experiments and re-examine existing techniques by applying the advantages of high brightness infrared synchrotron light.
