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

CXI branch:

  1. Coherent Imaging or coherent scattering in transmission geometry with the commissioning setup at the CXI branch between photon energies 275 and 1600 eV. The Andor Zyla or the Tucsen Dhyana detector are available in this call. Please contact beamline staff (Jörg Schwenke & Erik Malm) for details.
  2. Use of the CXI open port between photon energies 275 and 1600 eV. Please contact beamline staff (Jörg Schwenke) if you want to use the open port with your end-station.

The STXM branch is open for Fast Access. This entails short measurements of an exploratory nature, i.e. one or two ready-made samples that have one or two absorption edges to investigate. The purpose is to eg. check sample preparation methods, or provide images/spectra that can be used in a subsequent full proposal, or as a quick complement to data from other methods for a publication. A maximum of 6 shifts (24hr) can be given out. Measurements may be done as ‘mail in’ and performed by the beamline staff.

The STXM setup is available for Proprietary users,  please contact the MAX IV Industrial Relations Office for further information, and beamline staff for specifics regarding sample preparation and plan for the experiment.

The STXM branch is open for general users. When writing a proposal, please get in contact with someone from the beamline to effectively design and describe your experiment.

Training & Education proposals are unavailable for this call/cycle, due to ongoing revisions of the program and potential changes to the procedure. Check for updates on T&E access in this page.
