If you recently completed beamtime, please take our exit survey.


  Maintenance & Development

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


  Maintenance & Development

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


  Maintenance & Development

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

Cycle 35 Call for General User Proposals is OPEN until Wednesday, August 18 at 12pm (noon) CST. See Preparing a proposal for more details and contact beamline staff to discuss.

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.
