On July 3, 2015, ATMOS was selected to participate in the development of the new SIRIUS light source of the LNLS – National Synchrotron Light Laboratory. The project involves the final development of an Electron Beam Position Measurement Device (EBPM) for the Sirius Synchrotron Light Source. This process has the support of FAPESP and FINEP.
Sirius, one of the first sources of synchrotron light of 4th generation, is composed of a synchrotron accelerator of 3 GeV and 0.28 nm emittance. This new source will have brightness comparable or better than all those under construction or recently built in the Americas, Europe and Asia, allowing Brazil to remain competitive for the next 20 years.
