Two recently commissioned infrared beamlines on the 1.4 bending magnet port at the Advanced Light Source, LBNL, are described. Using a synchrotron as an IR source provides three primary advantages: increased brightness, very fast light pulses, and enhanced far-IR flux. The considerable brightness advantage manifests itself most beneficially when performing spectroscopy on a microscopic length scale. Beamline (BL) 1.4.3 is a dedicated FTIR spectromicroscopy beamline, where a diffraction-limited… 

The infrared synchrotron radiation beamline at the third generation light source ELETTRA

The synchrotron radiation emitted in the infrared range from a bending magnet of the third generation storage ring ELETTRA is studied in detail by simulation techniques. Edge effects are taken into

Improved spatial resolution for reflection mode infrared microscopy.

Improved spatial resolution is demonstrated using two different microscopes capable of diffraction-limited resolution: the first microscope is coupled to a synchrotron source and utilizes a single point detector, whereas the second microscope has a standard blackbody source and uses a focal plane array detector.

Synchrotron-based techniques for plant and soil science: opportunities, challenges and future perspectives

This paper aims at providing an introduction to synchrotron radiation and to the fundamentals of some widely used syn chrotron-based techniques, in particular X-ray absorption, fluorescence and tomography.

Antenna-mediated near field spectroscopic Imaging: Extension to the time and frequency domains

Scattering scanning near field microscopy is capable of measuring the response of a material to incident infrared light with a resolution determined by the tip radius of the antenna. We present new



First infrared beamline at the ALS: design, construction, and initial commissioning

The first IR beamline at the advanced light source, Beamline 1.4, is described. The design of the optical and mechanical systems are discussed, including choices and tradeoffs. The initial

Dependence of the fundamental band gap of AlxGa1−xN on alloy composition and pressure

Optical absorption studies were performed to investigate the dependence of the fundamental band gap of AlxGa1−xN epitaxial films on Al content and applied hydrostatic pressure. The results of
