The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) is responsible for operating the only synchrotron light source in Latin America. With open facilities that allow the execution of experiments in various techniques of microscopic analysis, the Laboratory benefits academic and industrial researchers, both Brazilian and foreign.
LNLS seeks to promote innovation in the country through interaction with the business sectors (Agriculture, Industry and Services). This is achieved through partnerships in research, development and innovation, technology transfer and the offer of technological services.
The Laboratory also encourages innovation through partnerships to build the new synchrotron light source Sirius, planned to be one of the most advanced in the world and the largest and most complex scientific infrastructure ever built in the country.
