Registrations are open for the 1st GRUN Workshop

The first edition of ‘’Groundwater Remediation using Nano/biotechnology with focus on the Contaminated Resources in Brazil’’ (GRUN) will be held on June, 24th and 25th

The workshop on Groundwater Remediation using Nano/biotechnology with focus on the Contaminated Resources in Brazil (GRUN) is jointly organized by Teesside University (UK) and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM). This event will be held from June 24th and 25th, 2019, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas, SP.

This workshop will be the first event in Brazil focusing on the use of metal nanoparticles for in-situ degradation of groundwater contaminates. The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and engineers to collectively explore how these technological advances can be applied to Brazilian groundwater systems.

First electron beam loops around Sirius’ booster

New Brazilian synchrotron light source will allow unprecedented experiments benefitting many fields

In the early evening of March 8th, when the campus of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) was mostly silent, shouts of celebration echoed through the corridors of the Sirius building, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source.

Inside, the team responsible for the installation of the particle accelerators reached another milestone: the first loop around the second among its three accelerators: the booster. It is a finely tuned equipment, along which the electrons must travel with micrometric precision.

Special call for proposals for the LNLS beamlines

Submissions are open from December 10th, 2018, to May 10th, 2019. This call is intended only for complementing proposals evaluated and executed over the last two years.

Dear LNLS users,

A special sall for Proposals is open for the LNLS beamlines listed below. This call concerns the beamtime available during the first semester of 2019, from January 29th to July 31st.

This special call for proposals is intended to supply beamtime for the users during the transition period from the UVX to the Sirius synchrotron light sources.

This call is intended only for complementing proposals that have been evaluated by the Proposal Review Committees (PRCs) and that have been executed over the last two years (2017 – 2018) at the UVX beamlines.

Submissions are open from December 10th, 2018, to May 10th, 2019.

We look forward having all of you taking the opportunity to complement your ongoing research at the LNLS beamlines.

With regards,

Serviço de Apoio aos Usuários SAU/ CNPEM

Ceremony marks the first stage of the Sirius project

New Synchrotron Light Source is the largest and most complex research structure ever buit in Brazil

The Brazilian President, Michel Temer, and the Minister of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications, Gilberto Kassab, participated last Wednesday (14th) in the ceremony commemorating the first stage of the new Brazilian Synchrotron Light Source, Sirius, in the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas (SP). Started in 2012, Sirius is the largest project in Brazilian science, a state-of-the-art research infrastructure, strategic for cutting-edge scientific research and for finding solutions to global problems in areas such as health, agriculture, energy and the environment.
