Information Management System

The information management systems team within KITS are responsible for web based systems used within the MAXIV Laboratory. The team handles new development projects, maintenance of existing systems and first line support for third party web tools.

Detectors and Scientific Software


We are a small international team with diverse scientific backgrounds who work on data acquisition, processing and analysis, either by devising and implementing custom solutions or by providing software tools for the beamlines.

Eiger Detector at BioMAX

We also support the installation, commissioning and operation of commercially supplied detectors, both position measuring and energy resolving, for example including mega pixel photon counting detectors, working with the beam line scientists in order to understand their detector requirements. We are interested in collaborations with other institutes who are engaged in detector research and development in order to bring custom solutions to the MAX IV beam lines where needed.


The hardware team works with motion control and electronics within control systems for beamlines and accelerators. We are involved all the way from procurement and design to commissioning, operations support, and further development of equipment and systems. The team comprises a wide range of skills, from electrical design and drafting to software development and implementation of complex timing systems.
