Namn på nationell/internationell infrastruktur som denna infrastruktur tillhör

Imperial college London and National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) in MD host similar instrumentation but with different specifications. A close collaboration ensures that broad studies can use several instruments for maximal impact.


The Edlén laboratory is a spectroscopic facilities based on two Fourier Transform Spectrometers (FTS) covering the full near-infrared to ultraviolet region, 5 µm to 1700Å. It is designed to study emission spectra from neutral to doubly ionized atoms, but other projects include calibration lamps and absorption cells for telescope calibration and exoplanet detection.

Utrustning och resurser

- Bruker IFS 125 HR, resolution 0.002 cm-1.
- Chelsea UV FTS
- Echelle spectrometer for vacuum ultraviolet (under construction)

Erbjudna tjänster

The facility can provide high spectral resolution (R=106) measurements of emission and absorption samples in the region 1600Å to 5 m

Styrning av infrastrukturen

The infrastructure is used by the Atomic Astrophysics group and its collaborators, and for teaching activites. There is no formal management of the infrastructure.
