The Sirius beamlines, named after Brazilian fauna and flora, are designed to house advanced scientific instrumentation, suitable for solving Brazilian development’s strategic areas. The light source can house up to 38 beamlines (from bending magnets and insertion devices), six of which are between 100 and 150 meters long, extending outside the main building experimental hall. Initially, a set of 14 beamlines is planned to cover a wide variety of scientific programs. The first six beamlines are in the installation and commissioning stage and are part of a first delivery package. A second beamline package will deliver another eight beamlines, with construction expected by 2022.
