MIA is a database specialized on interstellar ice analogues spectra. It mainly encompasses mid-infrared spectra of low-temperature molecular solids. The database will contain spectra of several solid-state complex organic molecules, commercially available or not, in either pure state or diluted into water, at different temperatures. Many of these complex molecules spectra results from reactivity studies, either thermal or photo-induced reactivity, from an initial mixture of reactants. The spectroscopic properties of these molecular solids are measured with Marseille based experimental facilities, using commercial Fourier transform infrared spectrometers (Bruker Vertex 7 and Tensor), under controlled conditions (high-vacuum, UV irradiation).
