Test environments for in-situ investigation of metallic materials Registration is now open! MetalBeams is an initiative within SIP Metallic Materials, run by Jernkontoret, Swerim and RISE, to encourage the use of large-scale infrastructure (synchrotron x-ray and neutron sources) by the metals industry. In view of the current covid-19 crisis and consequent travel restrictions, the
A team from the Swedish company Alfa Laval used MAX IV beamline MAXPEEM to gain unprecedented insights on the oxide layer of stainless steel. The information they obtained will be highly beneficial for the company’s R&D activities. At MAX IV Laboratory, we strive to empower academic and industrial users alike with ever more advanced knowledge
In a new publication in Nature Communications, a team from the Dutch company Syngaschem BV and the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research elucidates for the first time some aspects of the Fischer-Tropsch reaction, used for converting synthesis gas into synthetic fuels. Analysis performed at HIPPIE beamline at MAX IV were instrumental to achieve these
Nanoparticles used as a well-ordered model system for the complex industrial catalyst. Using a model system it is possible to achieve atomic resolution of the catalysts.

A new EU project in the program area Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerak (ÖKS) has been approved. The Hanseatic League of Science (HALOS) will build a unique collaboration between Hamburg and South-West Scandinavia, bring together the four unique research facilities MAX IV, ESS, DESY and European XFEL, and create a centre for integrated, world-leading Life Science innovation and research.
Earlier this summer, Lund University campus was filled with hopeful students, proud families, and busy professors. It was graduation season which meant that students were cashing in their hard work in order to receive new titles like, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy, many of whom had been taught by
Workshop on Synchrotron X-ray and Neutron application to Food Science and Technology The two major research facilities the MAX IV synchrotron and the European Spallation Source (ESS) will open up unique opportunities for the advancement of research in many fields of research in the Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerack region. This is particularly true for the food science research,
Join this one day workshop and learn about how industry can create value by getting access to advanced research tools at large research facilities! The day will contain presentations from companies that are taking advantage of the analytical techniques available at synchrotrons and neutron facilities, both directly and indirectly. They will share their stories on
