Researchers from University of Copenhagen, Technical University of Denmark and Lund University have recently published a paper showing that the acoustic levitation method can successfully enable studies on high concentrations of proteins in solution. The results have important implications for areas such as pharmaceutical, food and chemical industry. For many applications, such as pharmaceuticals, it’s
MAX IV Laboratory, together with Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) and the European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS), form the joint Science Hub InfraLife, Infra Access for Life Science Sweden. Recently launched, InfraLife supports Sweden’s national investments in large-scale research infrastructure through dynamic facilitation and access to cutting-edge technology, data science, and active industry-enabling collaboration, outreach,
2019 was a landmark year for MAX IV Laboratory. Continuing the long-standing tradition of delivering innovative technical instruments and capabilities for x-ray science to the research community since MAX-lab was inaugurated in 1987, MAX IV broke new ground by opening five new beamlines to users, and bringing three more into the commissioning phase for
Image: participants at the MAX IV User Meeting gathered for the opening plenary session at the Scandic Star hotel in Lund. LUND—MAX IV hosted the 31st User Meeting at the Scandic Star hotel from 23-25 September. The theme this year was Developing MAX IV: with the users, for the users. Over 300 scientists, researchers,
On Thursday November 14, the team at the CoSAXS beamline detected the first monochromatic light, a crucial step in the beamline commissioning activities. The CoSAXS beamline, set to become an advanced multipurpose Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) instrument, reached an critical landmark last week when the team detected the first monochromatic light. This detection
The experimental techniques used at the CoSAXS beamline will use a huge vacuum vessel with possibilities to accommodate two in-vacuum detectors in the SAXS/WAXS geometry. A major milestone was reached for the CoSAXS project when this vessel was recently delivered, installed and tested. Ann Terry, researcher at CoSAXS, about the new vacuum vessel and the
The Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, awarded over SEK 236 million to 33 different projects to promote the development of instruments, methods and technologies that provide the prerequisites for future, advanced research and innovation. One of the researchers who was granted funding is Kajsa Sigfridsson Clauss who is a scientist at the Balder beamline at
Fats being released from cookers such as deep fat fryers form into surprisingly complex droplets that may affect the formation of clouds and how the planet regulates heat. Do #cooking fats affect cloud formation? New research from @UniofReading and @UniofBath in @NatureComms. An international team using 2 #Synchrotrons @MAXIVLaboratory and @DiamondLightSou shows importance
We welcome Alfred Larsson as summer worker at CoSAXS. Alfred is studying civil engineering towards material science and will spend one month at CoSAXS developing an app for sample-detector distance optimization.
Procurement call open until 19/6: Design, delivery, installation and alignment of the vacuum vessel for the in vacuo compatible SAXS and WAXS detectors of the CoSAXS beamline at the Max IV Laboratory.
