LNLS is developing courses with a focus on fundamental aspects for the use of the new beamlines

LNLS is developing courses with a focus on fundamental aspects for the use of the new beamlines. Topics cover several areas: physical concepts, sample preparation, and especially processing and analysis of acquired data.

The classes were planned in order to help the user to solve their questions, making their experience on the beamline more effective. Classes are in video format, in Portuguese with English subtitles, and include assimilation exercises. Questions about the classes can be sent by email and will be answered by the beamline team.
