There are two types of beamtime at MAX IV: general access beamtime and proprietary beamtime.
Proprietary beamtime is a type of access tailored to industry needs. It is offered as:
- Single purchase (covering one specific project);
- Framework agreement for repeated access.
Proprietary beamtime grants:
- Full confidentiality;
- IP control over the produced data, with the possibility to retrieve all measurements once the experiments are completed;
- Faster access to beamtime (ideally within a month from the application confirmation);
