Something monumental happened at MAX IV this week. For the first time in our history, The three accelerators at MAX IV simultaneously supplied light to 9 beamlines. Some of these beamlines are in commissioning and not accepting regular users yet. For up-to-date information on this, please refer to the beamline schedule.
This is a huge milestone and as well as a record for us. VERITAS and MAXPEEM are the latest beamlines to receive light after a huge effort from the accelerator group, the operators, insertion devices, engineers, safety, vacuum, planning and of course the beamline teams.
If you’ve been following our operators on Instagram (ebeamops), You’ll already know that, of course.
