INTERNATIONAL REVIEW

BACK

One of the actions necessary to ensure the quality and assertiveness of the project is the periodical evaluation by external committees, composed of international Synchrotron Light Experts. Thus, some committees come periodically to LNLS to analyze the development of the project.

SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE


The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) is a committee whose function is to evaluate the LNLS as a whole every two years. The evaluation of the Sirius Beamlines is also part of its duties.

MACHINE ADVISORY COMMITTEE


The Machine Evaluation Committee (Machine Advisory Committee - MAC) has the main role evaluate developments in synchrotron light source and other facilities, including civil works.

The fourth MAC meeting was held between March 31st and April 2nd, 2015, and the committee was composed by the following members:


Albin Wrulich

PSI - SLS, Switzerland

Helmut Wiedemann

Stanford, USA

Leonid Rivkin

PSI - SLS, Switzerland

Mikael Eriksson

MAX-IV, Sweden

Nelson Velho de Castro Faria

IF-UFRJ, Brazil

Robert Hettel

SSRL - SLAC, USA

Zhao Zhentang

SSRF - SINAP, Shanghai, China

BEAMLINE ADVISORY TEAMS


The Beamline Advisory Teams (BATs) are gathered for the evaluation of the projects of the Beamines.

The most recent meeting of the BATs took place simultaneously with the 4th MAC meeting. The committees evaluated in detail four of the projects of the Sirius Beamlines, based on the Conceptual Design Reports (CDR), and made general reviews about six of the other beamlines.

In general, the committees were unanimous about the excellence of the projects and their strong connections with especially relevant scientific cases for the development of the Country. Some of comments extracted from committees reports are reproduced below.

“[Carnaúba] will be a unique national research tool for a wide user community working in the fields of agriculture, life-sciences, earth-, environmental-, and materials science. The interdisciplinary interactions between these scientific communities trigger the study of emerging and challenging projects.”

“The targeted scientific issues have high societal impact. We highlight the fact that issues of importance for the Brazilian community have been chosen as a starting point and further developments of the scientific case of this beamline should follow this track.”

“(…) The proposed mix of (…) techniques for the Cateretê beamline are well matched technically and are compatible scientific themes that will use the exceptional properties of Sirius and will provide unique world-leading capabilities.”

“(…) distinctive and powerful proposed capability. If successfully implemented, this will be among the best CDI facilities in the world.”
