Far-IR supports any phase of sample - gas, solid, or liquid - with required amounts varying depending on the technique. While most work on Far-IR is gas-phase high-resolution spectroscopy, the versatility of infrared experiments means virtually any sample can be run at Far-IR.

Purchased access offers quick and accurate solutions to proprietary questions. CLS scientists develop an experimental plan based on the client’s needs, and conduct all data collection and analysis, resulting in a detailed report with key answers to critical questions.
Academic clients can submit proposals through a peer review process. Beam time is granted based on scientific merit, with the expectation that any results will be published. In special cases, rapid access is also available for instrument or beam time.
