Thanks to new technological advancements, materials with cross-luminescence are getting new attention after a long period of reduced research activity. Users at FinEstBeAMS from University of Tartu work at gaining new knowledge on cross-luminescent compounds. Scintillators are compounds capable of emitting light when excited by an ionizing radiation, such as X- and gamma-rays or high
Understanding chemical processes, such as catalysis, at the atomic level is a complex endeavour. It requires a thorough experimental design, which spans from choosing and developing the right model, to using the best instrument to perform controlled and advanced analysis. The latter aspect is where MAX IV comes into play with its state-of-the-art beamlines.
