The National Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) designed and built the first synchrotron light source in the southern hemisphere, which currently operates at 1.37 GeV and has 18 experimental stations. Synchrotron light sources are large research facilities for producing beams of electromagnetic radiation of broad spectrum (infrared, visible, ultraviolet and x-rays) and high intensity equipment Today the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory is working on a new synchrotron light source of third generation, the "Sirius," a 3 GeV synchrotron accelerator and 0:28 nm radian emittance, which will be the world's best in its class. In synchrotron light sources (FLS), the acceleration of the electrons and the extraction of synchrotron light environments demand pressures in the range of ultra-high vacuum (10-7 to 10-12 mbar). In this context, the vacuum chambers of accelerators and beamlines are composed of different materials and geometries in order to meet the different needs and requirements for each component Within this challenging context emerges FCA Brazil, an specialized startup company in the design and develop of projects of ultra-high vacuum chambers… (AU)
