The CATERETE Group is responsible the projec tof the CATERETE beamline in the new synchrotron light source of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), Sirius. This beamline will be optimized to perform Coherent X-ray Diffraction Imaging (CXDI) and X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS). Among its applications are the investigation of the dynamics of biological phenomena and nanoscale structures in the areas of petroleum, catalysts and polymers, as well as in solving problems of the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

The CATERETÊ Group is also responsible for managing and operating the SAXS1 Beamline dedicated to X-ray Tomography in the current UVX 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 equipment, collection of data and processing of the data obtained in the SAXS1 beamline.

MORE INFORMATION

SAXS1 BEAMLINE

The SAXS1 beamline is an experimental station dedicated to Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) techniques, with fixed energy at 8 keV. SAXS is a technique available at most synchrotron research centers, and a well-established method of studying the shape and spatial organization of objects in the nanoscale with sizes ranging from 1 to 100 nm.

SAXS2 BEAMLINE

The SAXS2 beamline is an experimental station dedicated to Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) techniques in the hard x-rays energy range (6 to 12 keV) for studying the shape, size and structures of soft materials in the nanoscale with sizes ranging from 1 to 100 nm, with applications to molecular biology, medicine, life science, chemistry and material science.
