DanMAX is a Danish X-ray 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 two endstations: one for full field imaging, and one for powder X-ray diffraction. With a large and diverse user community, there will be a focus on high throughput and extended provision of data analysis tools. The combination of two related techniques will generate discussions between different communities and new collaborations, taking advantage of the high complementarity of the techniques.

DanMAX is funded by:
Ministry of Higher Education and Science, Denmark
The Capital Region, Denmark
Central Denmark Region, Denmark
Technical University of Denmark
Aarhus University, Denmark
University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The DanMAX undulator has arrived at MAX IV

Yesterday the DanMAX 3m long in-vacuum undulator arrived at MAX IV after a long trip from Hitachi Metal Ltd. in Japan. Today it has been unboxed and we were able to get a first look. Once installed the undulator will deliver the most brilliant X-ray beam at MAX IV. Before shipping the undulator went through
