MAX IV Laboratory (LU)

MAX IV Laboratory, a Swedish national synchrotron facility, took over from its predecessor, MAX-lab, in 2016. It provides access to 16 advanced beamlines for X-ray spectroscopy, scattering/diffraction, and imaging across various scientific fields. With over 300 employees, MAX IV hosts around 1000 users yearly, expected to double soon, including academic, research, industry, and government users worldwide. The facility operates cutting-edge linear accelerators and storage rings for electrons at 1.5 GeV and 3 GeV, making it the world's first fourth-generation light source, offering unparalleled brightness and coherence for experimental techniques.
