ForMAX allows in-situ multiscale structural characterization from nm to mm length scales by combining full-field tomographic imaging, small- and wide-angle x-ray scattering (SWAXS), and scanning SWAXS imaging in a single instrument. The beamline operates at 8-25 keV, with a beam size at the sample of ≈ 1μm – 5 mm depending on mode of operation.


The ultrafast beamline facilitates studies of the structure and dynamics of materials. Such studies are of fundamental importance for key scientific problems directly related to programming materials using light, enabling new storage media and new manufacturing techniques, obtaining sustainable energy by mimicking photo-synthesis and gleaning insight into chemical and biological functional dynamics. Due to the


The CoSAXS beamline is a state-of-the-art multipurpose Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) instrument with opportunities to use the inherent high coherent properties of the 3 GeV MAX IV ring through X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS) experiments. It offers high brilliance, monochromatic and tuneable X-rays, with outstanding performance in low beam divergence, high X-ray flux, and
