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

DanMAX takes first light
Just before lunch 2 June 2020 the Danish beamline DanMAX saw first light. Representatives from DTU, Aarhus University and the University of Copenhagen followed the process online. It was a happy beamline team that could share this moment and as Mads Ry Vogel Jørgensen, project manager diffraction, so adequately describes it it’s several years
