Image: FemtoMAX beamline at MAX IV A research group working with MAX IV’s FemtoMAX beamline has succeeded to slow the phase change from the solid to liquid state in the semiconductor, indium antimonide (InSb), by reducing the inherent vibrations between atoms. An important precursory step in the process was non-thermal melting of the sample, which
Just before lunch 2 June 2020 the Danish beamline DanMAX saw first light. Representatives from DTU, Aarhus University and the University of Copenhagen followed the process online. It was a happy beamline team that could share this moment and as Mads Ry Vogel Jørgensen, project manager diffraction, so adequately describes it it’s several years
European Open Science Cloud initiative: ExPaNDS project. credit: Diamond Light Source How can European researchers better share data and access valuable data from others across domains and specialties to conduct their experiments? The answer lies in a new, large-scale European data science project through the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative. For MAX IV Laboratory
An international collaboration between the UCL School of Pharmacy, the Lund Protein Production Platform (LP3) and ESS, through its DEMAX platform, have initiated biophysical and structural studies of three non-structural proteins from the novel coronavirus, SARS CoV-2, the causative agent of COVID-19. Recently they managed to solve and have now started to analyse one of
Hur förvandlar man en svart sörja från skogsindustrin till ett klart rinnande biobränsle att tanka bilen med? Det försöker Sara Blomberg reda ut. Till sin hjälp har hon röntgenljus från MAX IV och Vetenskapsradions podd Forskarliv har träffat henne här. Lyssna och ladda ner!
A new five-axis parallel kinematic mirror unit has been developed for MAX IV soft X-ray beamlines. Its development and technical characteristics are now described in a peer-reviewed article. In an article published in March 2020 in the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, a team from Uppsala University, MAX IV Laboratory, FMB Feinwerk und Messtechnik GmbH, and
A team from the Swedish company Alfa Laval used MAX IV beamline MAXPEEM to gain unprecedented insights on the oxide layer of stainless steel. The information they obtained will be highly beneficial for the company’s R&D activities. At MAX IV Laboratory, we strive to empower academic and industrial users alike with ever more advanced knowledge
International travel restrictions as well as national travel recommendations due to COVID-19 have imposed a challenge on scientists in need of beamtime. BioMAX is therefore now running remote sessions with users. At MAX IV Laboratory, our priorities during this COVID-19 pandemic are to keep our staff, users and contractors safe and contribute to societal solidarity
In a joint project across three universities and MAX IV laboratory, researchers have developed a revolutionary experimental setup for atomic layer deposition. The new instrument was designed specifically for MAX IV and will allow for observations previously impossible. SPECIES, one of the soft X-ray beamlines in MAX IV 1.5 GeV storage ring, has added to
We are thrilled to share with you MAX IV’s very own podcast: Intronauts – Exploring brilliant science. We have created this podcast because we are eager to share with all of you some of the stories some of the exciting stories about science and life in one of the most advanced laboratories in the world.
