SINCRYS – Single (micro) crystal X-ray diffraction

First Light: TBA (2025/2026) Single crystal X-ray diffraction is the preferred technique to solve the atomic structure of a crystalline material. It is now a routine technique in many research laboratories, however, the limited flux, spectral purity and focusing ability of a lab-source severely limits the size and quality of the crystals that can be


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. Two endstations provide a high-flux diffraction-limited KB mirror focus, and an X-ray microscope based on zone plate optics. Beamline documents NanoMAX Review Report (download
