    Virtual Meeting room on the conferênciaweb, a system of the National Research Network (RNP). Meetings can be scheduled by email:  ldrx@contato.ufsc.br


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

    Since January 4, 2022, LDRX has been part of the Multi-User Physical Research Laboratory (LAMPEF), which is registered on the National Research Infrastructure Platform MCTI.

  • Paper “Front Cover”

    Publicado em 29/06/2022 às 09:36 AM

    An article by Professor Dr. Eduard Westphal, from the Department of Chemistry (UFSC), together with a master’s student at UTFPR, is on the cover of the New Journal of Chemistry. Data obtained at the LDRX-UFSC helped to elucidate the organization of the molecules that make up the 7 new liquid crystals synthesized and characterized by the researchers.

  • PPGFSC-UFSC master’s student wins the “ROBERT L. SNYDER STUDENT AWARD” for the second time!

    Publicado em 15/07/2021 às 02:36 PM

    Master’s student at PPGFSC-UFSC, Marcelo Augusto Malagutti, was awarded for the second consecutive time with the “ROBERT L. SNYDER STUDENT AWARD” and will present work orally at the Denver X-ray Conference, which will take place between August 2nd and 6th 2021, virtually this year due to the pandemic.

    Discente do PPGFSC, Marcelo Augusto Malagutti

    The work entitled “Structural and Microstructural X-Ray Diffraction Analysis of the β-CoTe Nanophase Synthesized by Mechanochemistry: Anisotropic Size and Microstrain Modeling” (D-21 of the  General XRD session) is a compilation of the 1st article published by the student in co-authorship with Prof Carlos EM Campos (advisor), the newly graduated doctor from PPGFSC-UFSC, Kelli de Fátima Ulbrich, in close cooperation with researchers Julian Geshev and Vagner Zeizer Carvalho Paes, from the Physics Institute of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. The student will present recent results of his studies on the microstructure of nanocrystalline materials produced by him using more sophisticated mathematical models to explain experimental data from their samples analyzed in various X-Ray diffraction laboratories (including the LDRX-UFSC,  (including synchrotron light sources such as LNLS e SLS).

    Even with the pandemic, the scientific production of researchers using LDRX-UFSC was very good in 2020. See all production in  http://ldrx.paginas.ufsc.br/producao-cientifica/artigos/!!

  • 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.

    Publicado em 01/03/2019 às 10:25 AM

    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.
