UVX Synchrotron Light Source
UVX's experimental stations, called beamlines, allowed the execution of several experiments in microscopic analysis techniques using infrared, ultraviolet radiation and X-rays.
UVX is a second-generation synchrotron light source designed and built in Brazil. Inaugurated in 1997, it was the first synchrotron light source in the Southern Hemisphere. With open facilities, it benefited more than a thousand Brazilian and foreign researchers every year.
