Title : An Infrared Synchrotron Radiation beamline EMIRA at the third generation light source SESAME

Abstract :
SESAME is a third generation synchrotron facility which is being constructed in Jordan. Nine countries from the Middle East region are contributing to this project, SESAME is still under construction, it is located at around 30 kilometers to the North West of the capital Amman. The aim of this project is to provide the Middle East region with the intense light of the synchrotron radiation which strongly recommended for many applications that demands the brightness and other beam properties of the synchrotron radiation in the energy range extending from X-rays to infrared.
Thanks to the initial motivation and interest expressed by SESAME directorate and users, the Infrared beamline has been selected as one of the three day-1 beamline at SESAME. Other beamlines are mainly part of donation of beamlines from Daresbury, Swiss Light Source, and LURE. The IR beamline will be the first and only one brand new beamline, entirely designed.
The main objective of the IR beamline is to provide the Middle East scientific community of SESAME with the high brilliant Infrared synchrotron light, dedicated to spectroscopy and Microspectroscopy. Accounting for the construction details and space constraint of the storage ring in construction, the beamline has been designed to produce beams into the experimental floor, with minimum of aberrations. The optimized optical set up, the details of the mirrors mounting, and the location of all instruments in the ground floor have been designed with the assistance of softwares such as SRW, Rays and SolidWorks. Infrared Microspectroscopy will be the main objective of the initial operation of the beamline.
