Below are the access modes the beamline participates in, and potentially useful notes regarding what is offered for each:

Open for rotational crystallography – see Standard access

For fast access please contact the beamline. We encourage users to contact us for sample feasibility tests prior to serial crystallography beamtime.

The beamline setup available for standard proposals is also available for Proprietary users,  please contact the MAX IV Industrial Relations Office for further information.

MicroMAX is open for standard proposals for serial and time-resolved crystallography with the MD3-UP diffractometer, multilayer or crystal monochromator, focusing with CRLs (with a beam size down to 5 micrometer), microsecond X-ray chopper, ns-laser tunable laser and with either the Eiger2 X CdTe 9M detector or the PSI Jungfrau 9M detector. Serial crystallography sample delivery that will be offered includes small fixed targets and injectors. NOTE: At the time of the call the chopper and laser are not yet in operation and further commissioning of the beamline will take place during spring 2024.

The beamline is also open for standard and BAG proposals for rotational crystallography with the MD3-UP diffractometer, ISARA sample changer and Eiger2 X CdTe 9M detector using the crystal monochromator and CRL focusing (beam size down to 5 micrometer). NOTE: Automated rotational crystallography is still in commissioning and the experiment control in development. This functionality might not be ready in the beginning of the Fall 2024 run. Since this functionality overlaps with BioMAX we strongly encourage users to apply for both beamlines so that the choice of beamline can be decided at the time of scheduling.

Please contact Thomas Ursby (see top of right hand side menu) for questions regarding the call. All users are encouraged to get in contact before submitting a proposal.
