Infrared microspectrometry, using a synchrotron radiation source, has been developed at Super-ACO (LURE-France). In order to accommodate for constrained horizontal (45 mrad) and vertical (18 mrad) collection angles, a particular care has been devoted to the design and making of the extraction optics, in order to achieve the highest brightness as possible, for small area illumination. Experimentally, a net gain of one hundred in Signal to Noise Ratio has been measured for an upper aperture of 3 X 3 micrometers 2. Several applications are currently underway, and some of them, related to Biomedical Science are reported in this paper.
