A booklet has seen the light! It highlights the first phase beamlines funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg (KAW) foundation which are now is gradually going into operation. The booklet is an attempt to visualise the quite challenging journey from the first ideas discussed more than a decade ago to beamlines that are now
MAX IV has just received the written report from the committee appointed by the Swedish Research Council (VR) to review the Laboratory’s progress on project management on 19 February 2019.

Clean fresh water is a scarce resource. Areas of the world suffering from drought have to filter the salt out of seawater to make it drinkable. In other areas, the water may instead have a high content of toxic compounds, such as arsenic. If you think about a water filter as a kind of strainer
The samples at BioMAX beamline are very sensitive biomolecule crystals. It could, for example, be one of the many proteins you have in your body. They only last for a short time in the intense X-ray light before being damaged and needs to be placed exactly right before the researchers switch on the beam.
We talk a lot about light at MAX IV and we are very proud of the quality and brightness of the X-rays coming from our accelerator every day. However, the light on its own is not enough. Scientists coming to use MAX IV have lots different requirements when it comes to how their precious
The MX-group of MAX IV has been successfully to be a partner in a large UK doctoral training programme. The funding was announced last month by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the UK which will invest £446 million in skill development as well as partnering with industry for an additional
