The CARNAUBA Group is responsible by the project of the CARNAUBA Beamline in the new synchrotron light source of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), Sirius. This beamline will be dedicated to multiple advanced techniques using X-ray absorption, scattering and emission, and combining coherent light with nano-focusing. It is the longest of Sirius beamlines, with 145 meters distance between the light source and the sample environment. This length is required to produce a high optical demagnification and attain a focus size of about 30 nm.

The CARNAUBA Group is also responsible for managing and operating the XRF Beamline dedicated to X-ray Fluorescence techniques at the current synchrotron light source of the LNLS. The team of researchers and technicians are responsible for assembling the instrumentation necessary for performing the experiments. They are responsible for advising users in the operation of the experiment, collection data and processing of the data obtained in the XRF beamline.

XRF BEAMLINE

The XRF beamline is an experimental station dedicated to X-ray Fluorescence Microscopy (XRFM), X-ray Fluorescence Tomography (XFCT) and Total Reflection X-ray Fluorescence (TXRF) analysis in the hard X-rays energy range (5 to 20 keV). The beamline’s focus is on the determination and mapping of trace chemical elements in samples with applications in the fields of analytical chemistry, biomedicine, environmental geochemistry and materials science.
