I would like to bring to your attention, that the Canadian Light Source will be
issuing a call for proposals on August 5th 2009 with a deadline of September
16th 2009. Successful proposals will be granted beamtime between January
and June 2009.
The Far-Infrared beamline at the CLS is equipped with a Bruker IFS 125 HR
spectrometer capable of resolutions of better than 0.001 cm-1. There are
several sample cells available including a 2 meter white cell capable of
pathlengths up to 80 meters, which can be cooled down to -80 °C. In the
150 – 1000 cm-1 spectral region the synchrotron light source, can provide
signal to noise ratios significantly better than conventional light sources,
allowing high quality spectra to be obtained in a fraction of the time that
would be required without a synchrotron source.
More information on the Far-Infrared beamline at the Canadian Light Source
can be found at the following Websites.
