Brazil is building Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source which will be the largest scientific infrastructure ever built in Brazil and one of the world's first 4th generation light laboratory. Mogno, the future X-ray nano and microtomography beamline is being designed to execute and process experiments in only few seconds. For this reason, prototypes and automated systems have being tested and implemented in the current Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) imaging beamline (IMX). An industrial robot was installed to allow fast sample exchange through an easy-to-use graphical user interface. Also, scripts using Python and Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) were implemented for automatic sample alignment, measurement and reconstruction. In addition, a flow cell for study dynamics and behaviour of fluids at the rock pore scale in time resolved experiments (4D tomography) is being projected.
