Accessing experimental data

Experimental data are synchronized to the MAX IV offline storage at the Lund University where they are stored for the retention period of 3 months (TO BE UPDATED) and available to users.

From outside of MAX IV experimental data can be accessed by several methods:

  • Globus connect: maxiv#dts (recommended method)
  • sftp:


See detailed BioMAX Data transfer page for graphical instructions. Data access is the same for all beamlines.

For large data transfers from the MAX IV storage to outside of MAX IV please prefer the methods above. Pulling data from MAX IV internal systems can have negative impact on the user experience of others.
