DanMAX is a materials science beamline, dedicated to in situ and operando experiments on real materials. The beamline will operate in the 15–35 keV range and have three endstation instruments: one for full field imaging instrument, one versatile powder diffraction setup using an area detector and a high resolution powder X-ray diffraction instrument using a microstrip detector.

DanMAX is primarily funded through Danish sources, however, the beamline is accessible through the MAX IV general user program.

MAX IV Highlights 2019

  2019 was a landmark year for MAX IV Laboratory. Continuing the long-standing tradition of delivering innovative technical instruments and capabilities for x-ray science to the research community since MAX-lab was inaugurated in 1987, MAX IV broke new ground by opening five new beamlines to users, and bringing three more into the commissioning phase for
