• Communication channel created in conferênciaweb of RNP

    Publicado em 29/07/2020 às 06:24 PM

    Communication channel created: virtual room in the web conference communication system of the National Research Network (RNP).


    Community created to promote scientific partnerships between researchers and students at UFSC around X-ray Diffraction.

    It aims to expand the community of users of LDRX-UFSC, a multi-user laboratory at UFSC created in 2008 and which has an Xpert MPD Diffractometer acquired with funds from FINEP’s CT-INFRA 2005 Call.

    Meetings can be scheduled by email:  ldrx@contato.ufsc.br



  • LDRX back in operation

    Publicado em 18/02/2020 às 04:30 PM

    The LDRX diffractometer returned to operation after replacing the X-ray tube and the control computer. New items will be installed in March 2020 and it is expected to have all the functionality of the equipment (including the control system) available after this stage of the project “Reativa LDRX-UFSC” (Financing FINEP).

    New LDRX order submission system will be live soon!

  • LDRX out of operation – Funds for repair requested to FINEP – SOS equipment.

    LDRX out of operation since December 2018

    New Fault in the high voltage generator that feeds the X-ray tube. Generator should be replaced for the 3rd time!

    Requesting for Resources held yesterday for FINEP – SOS equipment.

    We hope to get back to working on LDRX soon.

  • To.Sca.Lake 2.0: Total Scattering for Nanotechnology on the Como Lake Lake Como School of Advanced Studies – May 29 – June 2, 2017

    Publicado em 29/12/2016 às 01:10 PM

    The Summer School “To.sca.lake 2.0: Total Scattering for Nanotechnology on the Como Lake” offers an extended overview on Total Scattering Techniques (from X-rays to visible light) for Nanotechnology, complemented by lectures on synthesis and applications of advanced nanomaterials. Theoretical, experimental and modeling aspects of Wide and Small Angle scattering methods will be integrated by hands-on tutorials on well renowned programs for DSE and PDF Analysis (Debussy and PDFGui) and Demo sessions on SAXS and Light Scattering. The Workshop is open to all aspiring scholars and scientists in any area related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and it is especially addressed to PhD students and young postdocs. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical and applied frontier developments in these fields.

    This is the 2nd edition of the school: click here to visit the news and reports of the 1st edition (2015).
