Strategy workshops: IR spectromicroscopy beamline MIRARI

Event Date: 2021-09-03  

LINXS and MAX IV warmly invites you to a virtual half-day workshop that will focus on recent advances in synchrotron-based Infrared methods, encompassing both micro and nano imaging in combination with IR spectroscopy. The meeting will also form the kick-off for a webinar series of IR-related talks during the autumn where we will be hosting in-depth introductory presentations on IR spectromicroscopy techniques for new users, as well as showcasing state-of-the art research with synchrotron IR methods in various areas of science. We therefore welcome all researchers interested in or intrigued by IR spectroscopic imaging!

The aim of the workshop and webinar series is to bring together a community of researchers from Swedish & international universities and institutes, industry and synchrotrons to develop and discuss IR methods and science. As a second goal, we want to identify interest, scope and science cases for a future IR beamline (“MIRARI”) at MAX IV. The workshop and webinars will therefore help us to provide crucial user input to the MAX IV process of developing a science-driven ‘Strategy and Roadmap’ guiding the development of the lab through to 2030 (see
