Some of the world’s leading researchers in material research gathered in Odense, Denmark in January 2017 to agree on the final details of DanMAX – the future Danish beamline at MAX IV. MAX IV will be one of the world’s leading X-ray sources when it is in full operation in a few years. At MAX IV
The results are discussed and interpreted in the NanoMAX control room. Just before Christmas the first Danish researchers led by professor Jens Wenzel Andreasen from DTU Energy received data from experiments at MAX IV. The results will help to develop the next generation of solar cells. “We applied for beamtime at the NanoMAX beamline during
The first user experiment on FabG-NADP complex at BioMAX was carried out by Peter Vella, Robert Schnell, Gunter Schneider at the Division of Molecular Structural Biology, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. The crystal structure of FabG from Acinetobacter baumannii was determined to 1.8 Å resolution from x-ray diffraction data collected at the
At the department of plant breeding, Swedish University of Agriculture, Ramune and her research group have developed bio based material from potato starch and wheat gluten. In order to develop a flexible and strong material nanostructure research was very important. Therefore they conducted experiments at MAX IV Laboratory. Learn more about these in the interview
NanoMAX have had their first successful user experiment. They achieved full ptychographic reconstruction and a resolution <50nm. Everything looks very promising – the machine and beamline are performing well and stable. Interview with Ulrich Vogt, KTH, Applied Physics and one of the first external users at MAX IV.
EUCALL’s project participants gathered at the Annual Meeting 2016 at HZDR. Project successes include new open-source simulation program. The European Cluster of Advanced Laser Light sources (EUCALL), a European Union-funded project that aims to foster links between accelerator- and laser-driven X-ray facilities, has completed the first year of its three year project period. The project
Last week the BioMAX and KITS teams could successfully install and start the operation of the Eiger X 16M (Dectris, Switzerland) hybrid pixel X-ray detector. This is a high performance x-ray camera which allows for the collection up to 133 diffraction images consisting of 16 million pixels per images or up to 750 images of
End of September, a stored beam in the 1.5 GeV ring at MAX IV Laboratory was achieved for the first time, thus completing Phase I of the MAX IV project. – This is one more important mile stone and we are all very happy and proud having being able to deliver results on time, says
With the new “super-microscope”, MAX IV, we are now able to zoom in directly on the molecular building blocks of tiny airborne particles. We can see not only the building blocks themselves, but also how they are organized inside the particles. This new knowledge could provide a window into the hidden workings of climate change.
A study of an enzyme that helps build and repair DNA in living organisms increases our understanding of how these processes are controlled and how we can use this to combat infections. Chemists at the Faculty of Science at Lund University in Sweden, together with their colleagues in Umeå and Stockholm, have studied the enzyme ribonucleotide
