Agreement will speed up the exchange of knowledge about techniques and uses of synchrotron light between researchers from Brazil and Canada 

Over the last decade synchrotron light has developed into one of the most valuable scientific tools for the investigation of new materials, bio-medical samples, and biological and chemical processes. To strengthen existing programs, joint development of new programs and techniques, a new memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) and the Canadian Light Source (CLS). The technical and scientific collaboration agreement aims to promote knowledge exchange to advance research in synchrotron science and its applications, especially in the field of agriculture.

This call for proposals intends to supply beamtime for the users during the beamline commissioning period

The Sirius project has reached another milestone in commissioning its accelerators and beamlines. Five new beamlines are entering the scientific commissioning stage, completing the number of six beamlines available for the user community. In addition to the beamlines, we have officially also opened two support laboratories and the scientific computing center. These facilities were officially inaugurated during a ceremony on October 8th.

LNLS is developing courses with a focus on fundamental aspects for the use of the new beamlines

LNLS is developing courses with a focus on fundamental aspects for the use of the new beamlines. Topics cover several areas: physical concepts, sample preparation, and especially processing and analysis of acquired data.

The classes were planned in order to help the user to solve their questions, making their experience on the beamline more effective. Classes are in video format, in Portuguese with English subtitles, and include assimilation exercises. Questions about the classes can be sent by email and will be answered by the beamline team.
