The DanMAX undulator has arrived at MAX IV

Yesterday the DanMAX 3m long in-vacuum undulator arrived at MAX IV after a long trip from Hitachi Metal Ltd. in Japan. Today it has been unboxed and we were able to get a first look. Once installed the undulator will deliver the most brilliant X-ray beam at MAX IV.

Before shipping the undulator went through a though testing at the factory and was found to be well within the agreed specifications. During the winter and early spring the undulator will be put through extensive testing again to confirm that the performance didn’t suffer during the long trip to Lund.
