Sirius will consist of a set of electron accelerators for experimental stations, called beamlines, and a building that will house all this complex. With 68,000 square meters, the building will be among the most sophisticated construction works ever performed in the Brazil.
Electron accelerators with the dimensions and technical specifications for the new Synchrotron Light Source Sirius and its beamlines require high-performance buildings and facilities, called critical-mission buildings, in which features such as stability (dimensional, thermal and vibrational) and maintenance availability and viability are essential. This is the building that will house the Sirius, one of the most advanced constructions ever built in the country.
This building is being installed adjacent to the CNPEM campus, located in Campinas, Sao Paulo, in an extension of land expropriated by the State Government of São Paulo for the construction of Sirius.
