Birthplace: Brazil

Staff scientist at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) since 2012, Raul O. Freitas is mainly involved in the fields of Synchrotron Infrared Nanospectroscopy (SINS), near-field optics and interferometry, IR beamlines optical design and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). In charge of the construction and operation of the LNLS IR1 beamline (UVX accelerator) and the new IMBUIA beamline in the Sirius accelerator, the researcher is interested in studies related to nanoscale vibrational properties of materials in general. Prior to enter the infrared nanospectroscopy area, he worked in the field of synchrotron X-ray diffraction applied to the study of nanostructured optoelectronic materials, which was the subject of his PhD jointly achieved at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and at University of Guelph (UoG/Canada) and lately the subject of his Post-Doc in a collaborative project between LNLS and Hewlett Packard Labs (USA). Still as a Post-Doc, worked briefly as a visitor research in the SSL-ESRF (France). Is an active reviewer of important scientific journals and is currently the chair of the peer-review committee of the Canadian Light Source. Before the academic life, the researcher worked for almost 10 years as a designer in the engineering department of an international company related to the fuels distribution business.
