Synchrotron radiation (SR) as an infrared (IR) source has several unique characteristics compared with the conventional infrared sources based on black-body radiation. When used with a microscope, an IR-SR beam can be focused to a nearly diffraction-limited spot size, which is very useful to IR studies of small samples. In addition, IR-SR is a pulsed and completely white source, which may enable time-resolved IR experiments over the entire IR region. These characteristics are also attractive for the study of photo-induced phenomena in condensed matter. This article reviews our recent studies of photo-induced phenomena using IR-SR at SPring-8.
