Science with coherent light
MAX IV and other upcoming MBA based sources provide, where diffraction limited, the smallest source size and highest coherent fraction that is possible for synchrotron light. Compared to 3rd generation sources these properties are improved by orders of magnitude. Several beamlines at MAX IV today make use of these novel beam properties and easily provide high energy or spatial resolution. Mainly, this allows us to apply known techniques to samples which at older sources wouldn’t provide sufficient contrast. However, one could say that this is a mere quantitative improvement. In this session, we want to explore methods and scientific areas where a greatly increased coherent flux is opening really new opportunities for X-ray based science. In addition, we want to identify areas in beamline instrumentation, detector development or data analysis, where additional development is necessary in order to be able to fully explore the coherence now becoming available.
