29th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU)

The 29th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) aims to gather the LNLS user community, encouraging the exchange of experiences and debates on the existing and future facilities. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures. With the imminent inauguration Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, the participation of the scientific community becomes essential to describe their needs and expectations for the new synchrotron source. The RAU meeting is the ideal place to foster this debate.

September 13th to 18th, 2021

XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS 2021)

The XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS 2021) will be hosted by the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), from September 13th to 18th, 2021, in Campinas, São Paulo. The 4th generation synchrotron light source, Sirius, will offer new possibilities on small angle scattering at its firsts years of operation. SAS2021 will promote a stronger scientific interaction among researchers from all over the world, specially the Brazilian community, and improve the relationship between scientific production and industry.

Cateretê Workshop

The aim of the Cateretê workshop is to present and discuss the new scientific perspectives offered at the Coherent Scattering beamline Cateretê, specifically X-ray imaging and time-resolved capabilities.

The Cateretê beamline at Sirius will be dedicated to coherent and time-resolved scattering experiments. It will provide cutting edge research tools that are non-existent today in Brasil, like 3D imaging with 10’s nanometer resolution, X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) to study dynamics and ultra-small angle X-ray scattering.
