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
International travel restrictions as well as national travel recommendations due to COVID-19 have imposed a challenge on scientists in need of beamtime. BioMAX is therefore now running remote sessions with users. At MAX IV Laboratory, our priorities during this COVID-19 pandemic are to keep our staff, users and contractors safe and contribute to societal solidarity
In a joint project across three universities and MAX IV laboratory, researchers have developed a revolutionary experimental setup for atomic layer deposition. The new instrument was designed specifically for MAX IV and will allow for observations previously impossible. SPECIES, one of the soft X-ray beamlines in MAX IV 1.5 GeV storage ring, has added to
We are thrilled to share with you MAX IV’s very own podcast: Intronauts – Exploring brilliant science. We have created this podcast because we are eager to share with all of you some of the stories some of the exciting stories about science and life in one of the most advanced laboratories in the world.
Not so long ago, graphene was proclaimed a new wonder-material thanks to its outstanding mechanical, chemical, and electronic properties. While mass-production of graphene-based devices is yet to come true, the extensive research within one-atom-thick materials has helped to discover a few other “flatlands”: silicene, germanene and borophene (one-atom-thick sheets of silicon, germanium and boron).
