Tunable infrared (IR) laser excitation of small biomolecules entrained in an expanding supersonic jet, or of biomolecular ions held in a cooled ion trap, provides a powerful means of isolating them at low temperatures in the gas phase and probing their vibrational spectroscopy at high resolution. Many alternative experimental strategies have been devised to achieve this. The article reviews their development and presents some representative benchmark examples of their application.
