The world is transitioning away from fossil fuels and hydrogen is poised to be the replacement. Two things are needed if we are to make the transition to a low carbon, “hydrogen economy” they are clean and high yielding sources of hydrogen, as well as efficient means of producing and storing energy using hydrogen. Hydrogen

Adding acid drop-by-drop
A research team, including scientists from MAX IV have reported in Nature Communications that the quest for atomic perfection in semiconductor devices was based on an oversimplified model. Semiconductors are the fundamental building blocks of all modern electronics. Improvements to these materials could affect everything from the clock on our microwave to supercomputers used
Claudia Struzzi and Nikolay Vinogradov working in the scanning tunneling microscopy laboratory at MAX IV Two projects have received funding from the Carl Tryggers Stiftelse för Vetenskaplig Forskning Atomic force microscopy at MAX IV for studies of novel carbon nanostructures and modern catalysts Alexei Preobrajenski, Jan Knudsen, Nikolay Vinogradov Scanning probe techniques such as
After a little over 3 months after receiving its first light HIPPIE beamline has successfully measured first XPS spectra in 30 mbar of N2. This is an important milestone in beamline project timeline indicating HIPPIE is ready to receive its first commissioning expert users in the nearest future.
Today the HIPPIE beamline received its first light from the undulator. Picture from the storage ring control room where the light was observed for the first time.
