Registrations are open for the Carnaúba Workshop

The first CARNAÚBA Workshop ‘’Sirius Workshop on X-ray Nanospectroscopy, Nanodiffraction and Nanoimaging’’ will be held on October 8th and 9th, 2019

The first CARNAÚBA Workshop will bring together the LNLS community – external users, staff scientists and engineers – and experts working in the field of X-ray spectroscopy, diffraction and imaging at leading facilities around the world to present and discuss the new scientific opportunities offered by X-ray nanoprobes with scanning energy capabilities.

The CARNAÚBA beamline will be the first Sirius X-ray nanoprobe exploring the coherence and the spatial resolution to study a wide range of materials. This instrument will offer X-rays in the 2 to 15 keV energy range, with a beam spot down to 30 nm, for multimode analysis including techniques such as: X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), X-ray excited optical luminescence (XEOL), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and ptychographic X-ray coherent diffractive imaging (ptyCDI) in small angle scattering and Bragg geometries. When coming into operation in 2020, this beamline will offer state-of-the-art research tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The event will be held on October 8th and 9th, 2019, at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), in Campinas, SP.
