BEAMLINE GUIDE
ALS BSISB (5.4, 1.4)


The Advanced Light Source
Berkeley, CA

Funded by DOE’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research, the Berkeley Synchrotron Infrared Structral Biology Program (BSISB) has constructed Beamline 5.4, a new infrared beamline at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) to advance the imaging of living microbes relevant to DOE missions. Because of its unique location on the roof blocks of the ALS’s linac and beamline test facility, there is space available for biological equipment necessary to grow and prepare living specimens next to the FTIR microscopes.1
