This call for proposals intends to supply beamtime for the users during the beamline commissioning period
The Sirius project has reached another milestone in commissioning its accelerators and beamlines. Five new beamlines are entering the scientific commissioning stage, completing the number of six beamlines available for the user community. In addition to the beamlines, we have officially also opened two support laboratories and the scientific computing center. These facilities were officially inaugurated during a ceremony on October 8th.

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.
