A very happy FinEstBeAMS team – (from left) Antonio Bartalesi, Vladimir Pankratov, Rainer Pärna, Antti Kivimäki and Maximilian Faust. Missing in picture is Liis Reisberg. FinEstBeAMS is the first beamline to take light from the 1,5 GeV storage ring. The beamline is funded by an Estonian and Finnish consortium, supported by the EU through the European
Fats being released from cookers such as deep fat fryers form into surprisingly complex droplets that may affect the formation of clouds and how the planet regulates heat. Do #cooking fats affect cloud formation? New research from @UniofReading and @UniofBath in @NatureComms. An international team using 2 #Synchrotrons @MAXIVLaboratory and @DiamondLightSou shows importance
Stockholm University, Uppsala University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lund University and MAX IV Laboratory have initiated a project to write a Conceptual Design Report (CDR) for a Soft X-ray Laser at MAX IV. This project has now received 10 million SEK from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The remaining 17 million SEK needed

Professor Anne Borg awarded an Honorary Doctorate at the Science Faculty of Lund University. She is a professor in physics at NTNU, Trondheim, since 1998. Between 2013 and 2017 she was assigned as dean of the Faculty of
Today, 13 November, the LEAPS Initiative is being launched at an event in Brussels in the presence of Robert-Jan Smits, Director General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission and Giorgio Rossi, Chair of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI). Directors from 16 organisations representing 19 light sources facilities across Europe
The first day of user data collections at the BioMAX beamline at MAX IV has now resulted in the first scientific publication and the first three-dimensional structure of a protein deposited in the international protein data bank. The first publication presents a new method for solving protein structures of challenging samples but the method can
New paper from MAX IV published in Scientific Reports reveals pigments in a turtle fossil that could protect it from the sun.
MAX IV Laboratory has received 100 million SEK from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for the investment in a new beamline, ForMAX, designed to serve both academia and industry. The new beamline is tailor-made for solving research questions related to materials from wood and will be a part of the transition to a bioeconomy.
The commissioning of the MAX IV synchrotron radiation facility in Lund marks the dawn of a new generation of storage-ring-based light sources. This new generation delivers one order of magnitude higher performance and allows realization of groundbreaking experiments on a variety of systems and materials at the atomic and molecular levels. This paper reviews
On June 30, 2017 Professor Jette Sandholm Kastrup, University of Copenhagen were granted two shifts of beamtime at BioMAX by the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) and the MAX IV Laboratory Management for the project “Molecular recognition of agonists, antagonists and positive allosteric modulators at ionotropic glutamate receptors”. The ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) are highly abundant
