The PGM Group is responsible for managing and operating the PGM and SXS Beamlines dedicated to soft X-rays spectroscopy in the current UVX synchrotron light source of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (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 at the beamlines.


The PGM (Planar Grating Monochromator) beamline is an experimental station dedicated to X-ray Spectroscopy in the soft X-rays (100 to 1500 eV) energy range, with applications to the study of the electronic, magnetic and structural properties of materials. It is well equipped with in-situ preparation facilities, making it particularly suited for surface science and thin films characterization. In addition to that, it is offers instrumentation for microscopy and photoemission on liquids.



The SXS beamline is an experimental station dedicated to X-ray Absorption and Photoelectron Spectroscopy in the soft X-rays (1 to 5 keV) energy range. It focuses on to study the electronic, magnetic and geometric structures of materials with applications to atomic and molecular physics, analytical chemistry, environmental and geoscience. Other experimental techniques available include X-ray Magnetic Dichroism and Resonant Auger Spectroscopy.
