About LNLS

The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), located in Campinas, at São Paulo state, operates the only synchrotron light source in Latin America, providing high brilliant light from infrared to X-rays for the analysis of organic and inorganic materials. Designed and built with Brazilian technology, LNLS was inaugurated in 1997 as an open facility to the scientific and industrial communities across the country and abroad.

LNLS is currently engaged in the development and construction of Sirius, the next Brazilian synchrotron light source. It is planned to be a state of the art fourth generation machine, designed to be one of the most advanced in the world. Its ultra-low emittance and thus high brightness will open up new perspectives for research in many fields such as material science, structural biology, nanoscience, physics, earth and environmental science, cultural heritage, among many others. It is scheduled to start commissioning in 2018 and to be opened to users in 2019.

About CNPEM

The Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) is a non-profit private organization qualified by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications (MCTIC). Located in Campinas, São Paulo, it is comprised of four laboratories, worldwide references in their fields, which are open to the scientific and business communities. The Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) operates the only synchrotron light source in Latin America and is currently building Sirius, a fourth-generation accelerator for the analysis of the most diverse types of materials, both organic and inorganic. The Brazilian National Biosciences Laboratory (LNBio) conducts research in the frontier of Biosciences, focusing on biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. The Brazilian National Laboratory of Bioethanol Science and Technology (CTBE) investigates new technologies for the production of cellulosic ethanol. Finally, the Brazilian National Nanotechnology Laboratory (LNNano) conducts research on advanced materials, with great economic potential for the country.

The four Laboratories also have their own research projects and participate in the transversal research agenda coordinated by CNPEM, which articulates scientific facilities and capabilities around strategic themes.
