LNLS - Laboratório Nacional de Luz Síncrotron

Scientific Committee

Every two years, a Scientific Advisory Committee composed of international experts from major synchrotron laboratories and researchers in related fields is formed to evaluate the operation of the synchrotron light source of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS). The committee also evaluates the projects for improvement of the infrastructure as well as the research and development projects carried out by the laboratory staff.

The Scientific Committee gathered in August 2015 to review LNLS’ activities during 2013 and 2014 was composed of the following members.
