Brazil will have one of the world's brightest synchrotron light sources


Synchrotron light is a type of broad-spectrum electromagnetic radiation, between infrared and X-ray, of high-intensity and high-brightness, that works as a microscope capable of investigating the structure of matter and viewing its atoms and molecules. Generated by the acceleration of electrons at a speed close to that of light, it can be applied in several areas of knowledge and has been essential for the production of new drugs, fertilizers, cell analysis, the study of different types of soil and new sources of energy, even for the withdrawal of oil in the layers of the pre-salt.
