A Word from the Director

Dear readers,

this is the 1st MAX IV Facility Newsletter. It is intended to keep you updated about the progress that we are making and help you prepare for things that we will be able to offer soon. As the days are visibly becoming longer, excitement at MAX IV is growing. After having turned off the MAX-lab accelerators on Lucia Day 2015 for good we are now fully focused on completing the MAX IV Phase I project and on serving first commissioning users later this year.

MAX IV Accelerators Status

The second half of 2015 marked the start of a new phase in the MAX IV project, as commissioning of the MAX IV 3 GeV ring was initiated. From mid-August to mid-December, the MAX IV accelerator group succeed in demonstrating all basic parameters of the storage ring; More...


BioMAX

BioMAX is the first macromolecular crystallography beamline at MAX IV. It is designed to be a state-of-the-art resource for macromolecular crystallography accommodating various experimental possibilities. The goal is to create a stable and reliable beamline that is easy to use but still runs at a very high performance level. More...

NanoMAX

Together with BioMAX, NanoMAX will take the first light from the 3GeV ring. All components of the beamline optics are installed and ready for this exciting moment.

Of the two endstations planned for the experimental hutch, the first to be installed, will produce a focussed beam of circa 100 nm for scattering and fluorescence experiments in a flexible geometry. More...

FemtoMAX

The FemtoMAX beamline uses the 3 GeV Linac in order to provide ultrafast X-ray pulses. The installation of the front end was completed 2014 and the beamline was installed at the end of 2014. First light was obtained in March 2015. More...


Status of Next Beamlines

During the Summer shutdown 2016, the insertion devices of Hippie, Balder and VERITAS will be installed. These beamlines will start commissioning already in September, however the installation and commissioning of VERITAS’ endstation is expected for the end 2016. More...


Towards new User Office at MAX IV – “MAX IV U”

The user office is often the first point of contact between the facility and current and prospective users whether academic or commercial. It is an important information channel that should assist users to identify the appropriate techniques and beamlines for their specific scientific problems, inform on how to apply for beam time and also aid in the practical aspects of a user visit such as accommodation and travel. More...
