This week’s research highlight is all about our new FemtoMAX beamline as well as X-ray scattering, featuring work from the whole FemtoMAX team, Thomás Plivelic and Marianne Liebi. FemtoMAX – an X-ray beamline for structural dynamics at the short-pulse facility of MAX IV J. Synchrotron Rad. (2018). 25 H. Enquist1, A. Jurgilaitis1, A. Jarnac1,2, Å.U. J. Bengtsson2, M. Burza1, F.
The FemtoMAX beamline facilitates studies of the structural dynamics of materials. Such studies are of fundamental importance for key scientific problems related to programming materials using light, enabling new storage media and new manufacturing techniques, obtaining sustainable energy by mimicking photosynthesis, and gleaning insights into chemical and biological functional dynamics. The FemtoMAX beamline utilizes
