SIRIUS EVER CLOSER TO REALITY

Construction works are at 84% and the electron accelerator begins to be assembled in March

The construction of Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, is advancing. In March, the first of the three electron accelerators begins to be installed: the LINAC, or linear accelerator, which is responsible for the initial emission and acceleration of the electrons. The building, now 84% completed, will soon be in the right conditions to receive installation of the remaining electron accelerators: booster and storage ring.

Sirius is the largest and most complex scientific infrastructure ever built in Brazil. Sirius will be a state-of-the-art scientific tool, open to the research community from Brazil and abroad. The new synchrotron light source will open new perspectives for research in strategic areas such as health, agriculture, energy, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and many others.

Registrations are open for the Workshop on Advanced Nanomagnetism Characterization

Event will be held on August 30th and 31st, 2018, at CNPEM, in Campinas, São Paulo

Registrations are open for the Workshop on Advanced Nanomagnetism Characterization to be held on August 30th and 31st, 2018, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, São Paulo.

The event will bring together specialists on advanced characterization techniques for obtaining information about magnetism at the nanoscale using a wide variety of probes, such as neutrons, electromagnetic radiation, ions and others. The workshop is also aimed at techniques that could complement the magnetic information, such as the characterization of crystalline and electronic structure.

This is a satellite workshop to the 16th International Conference on Molecule-based Magnets.

Registrations are open for the 1st Sirius Scientific Computing Workshop

The event will happen from March 7th to 8th, 2018

Registrations are open for the 1st Sirius Scientific Computing Workshop – S²C. The event will be held in March 7-8, 2018, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory and is intended to discuss the mathematical and computational aspects related to image processing and their distributed computing, currently in use at our facility.

The main objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for the community to share their research in areas related to image reconstruction, segmentation, and high-performance computing, among other image processing techniques. The workshop will offer an overview of the main theory with a hands-on tutorial on several numerical algorithms.
