SoftiMAX is the 13th beamline to “see the light” at MAX IV. The team received approval mid-March from the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority to start commissioning and has made rapid progress since then. The synchrotron light was delivered all the way from the undulator to the monochromator within the first few hours after opening the shutter.
The FlexPES beamline has recently welcomed its first regular user, conducting experiments on a new type of semi-transparent solar cells. With its two branches and up to four focal points, FlexPES allows for research spanning over several scientific fields, from surface and material science, to studies on low-density matter.
