Some argue that world economies cannot survive the impacts of business as usual in terms of pollution and high energy demands. In Lund, sustainability in work and life

It is a cold, grey November day in 2018 when we meet the researchers from Lund University at MAX IV, a research facility with the world’s brightest and most focused X-rays. Researchers from all over the world travel here to investigate things at the atomic level and see how molecules bind to one other;
Join us in the tour of MAX IV Laboratory’s accelerators hosted by Sverker Werin, professor in accelerator physics at Lund University and MAX IV. In this video you will follow the electrons in their journey from the electron guns to the storage rings and discover how the brilliant X-ray source of MAX IV is produced.
The technological advancement of fourth-generation synchrotrons, pioneered by MAX IV Laboratory, opens research opportunities that were impossible just a few years ago. In a newly published research paper, we get proof of the revolutionary impact that MAX IV’s photons can have for the advancement of nanoelectronics, both in research and for industrial manufacturers. Thanks to
With its three endstations, FinEstBeAMS is becoming one of MAX IV most prolific beamlines. Recently, three new articles on scintillators are the first studies to be produced using FinEstBeAMS’s photoluminescence endstation. FinEstBeAMS, the Finnish-Estonian beamline at MAX IV’s 1.5 GeV storage ring, offers research opportunities in the fields of atmospheric and material science. Recently no
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.
MAX IV’s Anders Engdahl was part of a team that published a landmark study about biological tissue found in a Jurassic fossil. The work published this week in Nature is one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind and sheds new light on the life of a prehistoric sea creature. Ichthyosaurs were reptiles
The world is transitioning away from fossil fuels and hydrogen is poised to be the replacement. Two things are needed if we are to make the transition to a low carbon, “hydrogen economy” they are clean and high yielding sources of hydrogen, as well as efficient means of producing and storing energy using hydrogen. Hydrogen
