Summary

Work with industry equipment automation for beamlines in a Brazilian synchrotron. Participated in international work to improve technical skills and to get useful contacts to the company. Developed important skills in software, mainly EPICS, CS-Studio, C, Python, LabVIEW (including cRIO FPGA), Delphi and macro programming using SPEC. Some of the equipment that was automated are MKS mass controller; Omron, Eurotherm, Lake Shore temperature controllers; Parker, IMS, and Galil stepper motors; Hopper Scientific CCD.

Work History

Dec 2006Present

Computer Engineer

LNLS -  Brazilian Synchrotron

Improved many beamlines systems, bringing speed to experiments, gains on beamline usability control, migration of legacy system to EPICS and integration of new equipment to the current system. Description of skills and responsibilities are the following:

  • Researched for industrial equipment to develop software and suggested hardware solutions to automate them with a computer, microcontrolled system or FPGA.
  • Developed software using EPICS, C, Python, LabVIEW and Delphi to automate the beamlines.
  • Developed knowledge in stepper motor, robotic arm, CCD detector, ionization chamber, photodiode using current to voltage transformation, digital inputs, and outputs, NI cRIO with Ethernet or Ethercat and temperature controller.
  • Maintained and improved personal and equipment protection system using Pepperl-Fuchs PLC and step 5 language. Built the entire protection system of two beamlines from scratch.
