Paper Abstract

The Canadian Light Source is one of the largest scientific projects in Canada, and one of the most advanced synchrotrons in the world. This new research tool at the University of Saskatchewan will help to find Canadian solutions for global challenges in health, advanced materials and the environment. Biological applications will play an important role in SR research programs, in fact, among six beamlines scheduled for operation in year 2004, such as: • IR beamlines: o far IR high resolution spectroscopy for gas phase and surface science (20cm-1-2000cm-1). o mid IR spectromicroscopy (500cm-1 -12,000cm-1) for biological and industrial applications. • high resolution (>104) Variable Line Spacing Plane Grating Monochromator; 8-250eV for angular resolved PhotoElectron Spectroscopy. • Spherical Grating Monochromator beamline from the SRC, Wisconsin; 200-1900eV for general type spectroscopy. • Spectromicroscopy beamline, designed for 100-2000eV energy range and full polarization control of SR radiation. • protein crystallography beamline, operational in 6-18keV energy range. • general purpose µXAFS, which focus hard x-ray beam (3.5-40keV) to a spot as small as 10 micron in diameter,
