Synchrotron radiation has become a powerful tool for studying unique ancient artifacts such as works of art and fossils.
Synchrotron radiation has become a powerful tool for studying unique ancient artifacts such as works of art and fossils. In the last decade, the structures of these historical materials have been revealed on a micro and nanometric scale, helping a variety of areas to understand the past and to learn how to preserve these relics.

Award it’s conferred by the Strategic Affairs Secretariat (SAE) of the brazilian government
Four of the 37 thesis of PhD laureate in the 2010 edition of the Marechal-do-ar Casimiro Montenegro Filho award, conferred by the Strategic Affairs Secretariat of the Presidency (SAE), were based on researches conducted on the premises of the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), in Campinas. The LNLS houses the only source of Synchrotron Radiation in Latin America and it is used by the scientific and technological community for research in the fields of nanoscience, advanced materials, drugs, alternative energy, and others.
