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.

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.

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.
