The XRD1 Beamline Group is responsible for managing and operating the XRD1 Beamline dedicated to X-ray Powder Diffraction 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 and processing of the data obtained in the XRD1 beamline.


The XRD1 beamline is an experimental station dedicated to X-ray powder diffraction analysis in the hard x-rays (5.5 to 14 keV) energy range. It focus on the determination of structural parameters of polycrystalline samples, with applications to physics, chemistry, materials science, materials engineering, environmental and geosciences, pharmacy, biology. It is also possible to study the samples in a large range of temperatures (100 – 1070 K).
