We report on the successful design, installation and commission of the new AU-IR beam line at ASTRID2. ASTRID2 is the new synchrotron facility running at top-up mode and at 580 MeV, which is optimized for low energies at Aarhus University, Denmark. The highlight of the beam line is that it is simple, low cost and reliable. The optics system consists of two gold-coated mirrors only and is as close as 1.367 m away from an entrance edge of a bending magnet. This allows a horizontal acceptance angle of 35 mrad and a vertical acceptance of 28 mrad. The source point is chosen to be near the leading edge of the bending magnet where the electron beam enters the dipole field. This allows us to use the strong edge radiation from the bending magnet together with the bending radiation. The beam line is equipped with a VertexTM 70v FTIR spectrometer from BrukerTM. The beam line design and choice of the “rock-solid” optical design version of spectrometer ensure a good reliability to beam drift and vibrations. Currently, the system is running at mid-range IR. Further upgrades have been planned.
