MAX IV Open Day — An enlightening exploration of science

MAX IV Laboratory welcomed nearly 1000 visitors on Open Day, the facility’s first major public event in five years. A fantastic lineup of interactive science stations with enthusiastic staff engaged guests inside the experimental hall of the large ring. In the mix, exhibitor booths, Vattenhallen, the Lund Robotics group with Buster the dog, Tetrapak, ESS, Kraftringen, Nano Lund, Medicon Village, and the Uppåkra archaeological group, drew interesting discussion.

The 3rd Pulsed High Power RF Sources Workshop held at MAX IV

Experts in Pulsed Radio Frequency from 14 laboratories worldwide gathered at MAX IV from 18-20 September 2023 to discuss and exchange experiences, challenges, and knowledge regarding klystrons, modulators, and RF components. Pulsed RF power for a laboratory, such as MAX IV and other similar facilities, is one of the most essential components for the laboratory’s research activity. The facility’s performance relies heavily on Pulsed RF Power maintenance and developments.
