Accelerator status and schedule

User operation suspended
The COVID-19 Pandemic risks in MAX IV are managed in accordance with the recommendations of Lund University & public health authorities including the Swedish Public Health Agency (FHM).
From Monday 18 January on, MAX IV will suspend normal on-site operation and enter into a warm shutdown with minimum on-site staff level. We expect this situation to continue for the next several weeks at least and will update this page with a new schedule when the situation has changed and we are going back into user operation.
Machine operation schedule
A standard delivery week begins and ends at 08:00 on Monday. Monday 08:00 until Tuesday 08:00 is reserved for maintenance and start-up activities on the accelerators. Tuesday 08:00 until Wednesday 08:00 is used for beamline characterisation and commissioning, and operational beam currents are not guaranteed during this time. The remainder of the week is delivery to users at operational currents.
