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 – 1 mm depending on mode of operation.

ForMAX is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and Swedish industry via Treesearch – a national platform for research on new materials and speciality chemicals from forest raw material. The beamline is accessible for both Treesearch members (50%) and general users (50%) through the MAX IV user program.
