Professor Paul Dumas has been involved in the design of optical systems and research infrastructure for more than one infrared experimental beamline around the world. He also specializes in the use of infrared radiation in research of archeology, cultural heritage as well as biology and medical diagnostics. Together with Dr. Ferenc Borondics, head of the infrared experimental beamline at SOLEIL, they discussed the construction solutions and assembly of the front-end on the SOLAIR beamline.
The huge effort of the entire SOLARIS team was crowned with the installation of the heart of the newly constructing SOLABS beamline - its monochromator. On September 24, 2021, the beamline team observed a monochromatic beam of radiation on a YAG crystal mounted at the output of the monochromator. This is very good news not only for the team but also for users who will be able to apply for beamtime on SOLABS in the spring of 2022.
We invite you to submit applications for access to the SOLARIS Centre research facilities. Deadline to submit for proposals is October, 5th, on 12:00 (noon) CET.
