Infrared Beamlines

Project Description

This project is part of the Canadian Consortium for Synchrotron InfraRed Spectroscopy, a co-ordinated plan for development of infrared synchrotron capabilities in Canada. It involves construction and operation of two beamlines for mid and near infrared applications. Each line will have its own bending magnet source. The focus of the two lines are:

1. Biological Microspectroscopy (Mike Jackson)

2. Industrial Spectroscopy/ Microspectroscopy (Farid Bensebaa)

A balanced mix of academic and industrial research will be carried out on these lines.

While these facilities are being constructed, the infrared community in Canada is taking part in operating an infrared beamine at the NSLS. Please contact Tim May if you are interested in participating.
