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

Samples Bulk and powdered samples, sections, batteries, micro-reactors, mechanical deformation cells, etc.


Hutches ready and optics contract signed for DanMAX

  Recently, huge forklifts have been making their way through the experiment hall transporting the heavy lead walls that are making up the experiment and optics hutches for one of MAX IV’s highest energy beamlines. DanMAX is under construction and the beamline team is expecting to receive its first users around early 2020, says one
