The MAX IV facility consists of a 3 GeV storage ring, a 1.5 GeV storage ring, and a linear accelerator (fed by two guns) that serves as a full-energy injector to the rings, but also as a driver for the Short Pulse Facility. The 3 GeV storage ring with a circumference of 528 m is geared towards hard x-ray users, while the 1.5 GeV storage ring (96 m circumference) serves soft x-ray and UV users. The 3 GeV linac operates at up to 100 Hz as driver for the SPF and injects into both storage rings at up to 10 Hz.
