Far-IR/THz Spectroscopy Beamline MIRRORCLE-6FIR at SLLS of Ritsumeikan University
Keywords:MIRRORCLE, Synchrotron radiation, Beam line, Ray-trace, Terahertz, Far infrared spectroscopy.
A new beamline, MIRRORCLE-6FIR for far infrared-terahertz (THZ) spectroscopy (FIRS) has been recently constructed at the synchrotron light life science center (SLLS) of Ritsumeikan University. An exactly circular optics with vertical angle has been employed as the first mirror which collects synchrotron radiation (SR) photons emitted into 2π of a circular electron orbit of length 1 m only. An exit opening on its surface can extract SR photons up to 264 mrad in horizontal and 198 mrad in vertical. The optimum optical system has been determined by using ray trace simulation code ZEMAX. The purpose is to develop an FIRS beamline with high power FIR. The design of the beamline optics with the results of its ray-tracing are reported in this article.
