The hard X-ray nanoprobe of Max IV – NanoMAX – is designed to take full advantage of MAX IV’s exceptionally low emittance and the resulting coherence properties of the X-ray beam. The use of diffraction-limited optics allows producing tightly focused coherent beams enabling imaging applications at unprecedented resolution.
