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.
