Scientific Computing

The Scientific Computing group supports research carried out on the beamlines of the synchrotron light source Sirius, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), using modern computational resources that allow a high processing power for the collected data.

This processing is often done concurrently and/or distributed using one or more high performance servers coupled to a data network with low latency and high performance; mainly using programming languages suitable for data distribution on graphics cards. The calculation, rendering, visualization and storage time of the processed data – which are in the order of tens of Gigabytes – must be optimized so as not to interfere with the experimental procedure of the research carried out on each beamline.
