SOLAIR (under construction)

The beamline will enable chemical analyzes at the micro-scale and intermolecular interaction studies in a wide range from far (FIR), through average (MIR) to close infrared (NIR). Such a wide spectral range on one end station is very rare and will allow to undertake research as well as development and application works in biomedicine, nanotechnology, environmental sciences and many other fields of science.

The beamline team:

  • prof. dr hab. Wojciech Kwiatek, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences
  • dr hab. Kamilla Małek, prof. UJ, the Jagiellonian University
  • dr Tomasz Wróbel, the SOLARIS Centre
  • mgr Danuta Liberda, the SOLARIS Centre.

Status: beamline under construction
Source: bending magnet
Photon energy range: 500 meV – 12,5 meV
Radiation polarisation: linear, circular
End stations: FTIR microscope, AFM-sSNOM-FTIR microscope
Research techniques: IR microscopy and imaging (with an FPA detector), AFM-IR-sSNOM imaging identyfing chemical composition of different materials from nanometer to centimeters scale.
