MAX IV – Most brilliant X-rays for research
MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing the R&D-community with the most brilliant X-rays for research. With the MAX IV facility, Sweden will have the highest quality of X-rays available to scientists from academia and industry in the whole world. X-rays is used to understand, explain, and improve the world around us. They enable the study of materials that we use today and improve them beyond the performance that we know. In addition, MAX IV allow scientists to develop new materials and products that we cannot even imagine today, such as medications with better and more precise functions and fewer side-effects, nanoparticles for diverse areas of application, including paints, catalysis or computing, or lighter and stronger packaging materials for the future.
MAX VI was inaugurated in June 2016 and has currently 14 number of operating beamlines available for academia and industry. I you are interested in using the facility, start here.
