The Detectors group provides resources to develop and support advanced radiation detection systems for specific applications that meet the scientific challenges of the Sirius synchrotron light source beamlines, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS).

The group is responsible for coordinating activities such as the development of new detectors, the exploration of new technologies and ideas in radiation detection systems for potential applications at Sirius, and the acquisition and adaptation of commercial detectors. In addition, the group also performs tests, calibration, characterization, and maintenance of detectors.

Currently, the group focuses on building hybrid detectors with a large active area and high image rates per second for X-ray detection, developing, assembling and testing hardware, firmware, software and sensors, in collaborations with other facilities, laboratories, institutes and companies.
