SINBAD, the infrared beamline which extracts radiation from the DA(Phi) NE collider of the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, will be operating in the fall of 1999. The optical layout of SINBAD, fully designed by ray tracing simulation, includes six mirrors which transfer and focus the radiation to an interferometer placed more than 20 m from the source. The actual brilliance gain at the entrance of the interferometer has been accurately evaluated by simulating the expected aberrations, the mirror roughness, and diffraction effects.
