The MOGNO Group is responsible for the project of the MOGNO beamline in the new synchrotron light source of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), Sirius. This beamline will be dedicated to obtaining three-dimensional images of different materials, quickly, non-invasively, quantitatively and with high resolution.
The MOGNO Group is also responsible for managing and operating the IMX Beamline dedicated to X-ray Tomography in the current UVX synchrotron light source of the LNLS. The team of researchers and technicians is 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 IMX beamline.
The IMX beamline is an experimental station dedicated to X-ray Tomography imaging techniques. The beamline can acquire x-ray images using a combination of absorption, phase or dark field imaging modalities. This beamline can operate in either pink beam, with energy spectrum ranging from 4 to 20 keV, or monochromatic beam. Applications include the analysis of the internal structure of fossils and rocks, the geometrical description and quantification of porosity and permeability of materials, and the structure and characteristics of cells.
