Iron leaking from forest soil is thought to be a factor in the increasing brown coloration of nearby waters called browning. It has consequences ranging from their use as drinking water to the sight of water living organisms in a darker surrounding. A recent experiment at beamline Balder aims to contribute clues to a better
The Species beamline, a soft x-ray beamline on the 1.5 GeV ring, received first light 1 April 2019 and since then the team have been busy commissioning and characterizing the performance of the beamline. In short, theory and reality align very well and the first APXPS experiment with synchrotron radiation at SPECIES has been demonstrated.
In March, MAX IV, LINXS and RISE organised a workshop to bring together x-ray and neutron researchers and the food industry. The aim was to identify common challenges and start new collaborations on how to develop and improve food and food processes. More than 100 participants attended the event, including researchers from different institutes and
The experimental techniques used at the CoSAXS beamline will use a huge vacuum vessel with possibilities to accommodate two in-vacuum detectors in the SAXS/WAXS geometry. A major milestone was reached for the CoSAXS project when this vessel was recently delivered, installed and tested. Ann Terry, researcher at CoSAXS, about the new vacuum vessel and the
