The 50th birthday of D11

A History of SANS at the Institut Laue – Langevin

In September 1972 the first user experiment was performed on D11, the archetype pin-hole SANS at the Institut Laue – Langevin. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of D11 a symposium will celebrate this achievement as a satellite meeting to the XVIII International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS2022).

The symposium shall take place as an in-person meeting (the sanitary situation permitting) from 26-Sep until 28-Sep 2022.

More information together with important dates will be soon put on

7th School of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

As part of the scientific activities of the 18th edition of the International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (SAS), the LNLS/CNPEM is organizing the 7th School of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS School). The satellite school will take place at Sirius on 16 to 20 September 2022, which are the following days of the 18th SAS 2022 Conference.

In this edition, the school will be focused on the scattering data analysis of biological systems, like proteins and membranes. Moreover, there will be both international and national well-known researchers giving classes. A detailed tentative program will soon be announced at the website.

To the present date, the organizing committee are planning a 100% on-site school since it will be included “hands-on” experiments at Cateretê beamline.

The school is proposed for students and early career scientists enthusiastic to learn SAXS.
