Description:

The 2nd Computational Processing for Users (CPU) will be held in Nov 5, 2019, at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory and is intended to discuss the mathematical and computational aspects related to data processing and their distributed computing, currently in use at our facility.
The main objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for the community to share their research in areas related to image reconstruction and segmentation, and general high-performance computing for data processing, among other numerical techniques related to a synchrotron beamline. The workshop will offer an overview of the main theory together with several examples.

Description:

The first edition of the Time-resolved high energy x-ray imaging meeting will be held on the 5th of November 2019 during the 29th Annual User’s Meeting (RAU), at CNPEM campus in Campinas, SP. The aim of this satellite meeting is to gather the current X-ray tomography community, exchange experiences and discuss future experiments at Mogno beamline, which is dedicated to micro and nano X-ray tomography. Multi-scale studies of 3D structures, low-dose in vivo and in-situ measurements are examples of experiments that will be possible at this new beamline.

Description:

The workshop TRIXS will cover the current trends on synchrotron based soft X-ray spectroscopy with particular emphasis on Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) applied to free molecules and condensed matter. We will discuss frontier problems and strategies to investigate them using a combination of theory and modern synchrotron-based methods. Our aim is to bring together theoreticians and experimentalists interested in exploiting the new tools that will be available at Sirius to understand the electronic structure and low energy excitations of solids, liquids and gases

  • Marco Moretti Sala: Universidade Politécnica di Milano

Target public: 

The target audience is physicists, chemists and material scientists interested in the electronic structure and low energy excitations of molecules and solids.

Topics:

The Scientific program of the TRIXS workshop will cover applications of soft x-ray spectroscopy in the areas of Condensed Matter and Materials Physics including transition metal oxides, cuprates and iron-based superconductors, strongly correlated materials among others. It will also cover applications on Chemistry and Molecular Physics including enzymes, potential energy surfaces, solvation and confinement effects, vibronic coupling, ultra-fast dissociation and charge transfer. Moreover, we will discuss the latest developments and status of high resolution RIXS instruments at synchrotron sources around the world.

Description:

Nanomaterials have revolutionized the way we live in this world. The nanotechnology has enabled to tailor the structure of the material at an extremely small scale to achieve specific properties which have allowed to improve technology and industry sectors. The so-called Engineered Nanomaterials (ENMs) have produced many functional and innovative materials that are widely used in several applications, for instance, in cosmetics, medicine, energy, agriculture, environment, etc.., to name few of them. Significant advances have been done in the past few years on studying the relationship between physicochemical properties of the nanomaterials and their toxicity. As for the environment, general concerns have raised about the effects on the ecosystems due to the extensive transformation of the ENMs, many of them with unknown properties. Studies in-vitro and in-vivo conditions should be conducted to properly understand their physicochemical properties and thus to assess the impact of these materials in complex systems. Among widely used traditional techniques for ENMs characterization, synchrotron radiation techniques have proved to be very useful as it can be possible to study these complex systems in a non-destructive manner offering high sensitivity, chemical specificity, and spatial resolution. The main goal of this workshop is to discuss the status of the applications of synchrotron-based techniques to characterize ENMs in complex biological and environmental systems. Moreover, with the new Brazilian fourth generation light source Sirius entering soon in operation, synchrotron light with unprecedented intensity and brilliance will be delivered to the experimental stations allowing to perform novel and challenging experiments within the main topics addressed in this workshop.
