Português

Sirius, the new Brazilian Synchrotron Light Source, will be the largest and most complex scientific infrastructure ever built in the country and one of the first fourth-generation synchrotron lightsources of the world. It is planned to put Brazil on the leading position in the production of synchrotron light and is designed to be the brightest of all the equipment in its energy class.

Sirius will enable a qualitative improvement to the research performed by its users, allowing experiments that are nowadays impossible to be executed in Brazil, significantly increasing its capabilities in strategic areas such as energy, food, environment, health, defense and many others.
