We are glad to announce and host the 10th edition of International Workshop on Infrared Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Accelerator Based Sources – WIRMS 2019.

Promoted by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), the WIRMS 2019 will be held in Brazil from the 23rd to 27th of September 2019. The workshop will highlight the latest advances in infrared spectroscopy and imaging inside synchrotron and free electron laser facilities.


The event will gather around 100 participants including infrared spectroscopy experts in several modalities such as ultra-resolved chemical imaging, vibrational analysis at extreme environments, THz spectroscopy, new infrared sources and detectors, time-resolved chemical analysis, infrared spectral-tomography among others.


In an overwhelming environment that mixes tropical rainforest, rocks and beautiful beaches, we expect WIRMS 2019 to be a great occasion for connecting ideas and for discussing future perspectives of the community in the context of new light sources, including the arrival of 4th generation storage rings.


We look forward to welcoming you to Brazil in September!
