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,
ForMAX, the phase III beamline combining x-ray microtomography with small- and wide-angle x-ray scattering for multiscale structural characterization of hierarchical materials, is progressing. The first major installation at ForMAX, the radiation safety hutches delivered by Innospec Prüfsystem GmbH (Dreseden, Germany), has been taking place during the last two weeks. The purpose of the radiation safety
All agreements have now been signed, and the construction of the ForMAX instrument at MAX IV is starting. This is a result of co-investments made by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Swedish forest industry. The decision by the foundation to provide 100 MSEK for setting up the instrument was made in 2017,
We are pleased to announce the first ForMAX User Workshop on the 23rd of January, 2018. MAX IV has together with academic and industrial partners recently secured funding for the construction of ForMAX – a combined scattering and imaging beamline for structural characterization of complex materials from atomic/molecular to mm length scales. A special focus
MAX IV Laboratory has received 100 million SEK from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for the investment in a new beamline, ForMAX, designed to serve both academia and industry. The new beamline is tailor-made for solving research questions related to materials from wood and will be a part of the transition to a bioeconomy.
