MAX IV Laboratory

Description MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory at Lund University, which supports three distinct research areas: accelerator physics, research based on the use of synchrotron radiation, and nuclear physics. The laboratory is open for access to the international research community. The laboratory is currently operating three storage rings for the production of synchrotron radiation for both national and international researchers. The three operating storage rings are MAX I (550 MeV, established in 1986), MAX II (1.5 GeV, established in 1997) and MAX III (700 MeV, established in 2007). As a common injector for all three storage rings a 400 MeV linac is used. About 940 individual researchers from more than 30 countries visit the laboratory every year. The laboratory operates beamlines covering a wide spectral range from IR through UV, VUV, soft X-rays into the X-ray regime. The MAX IV Laboratory is presently engaged in the construction of a new facility, MAX IV, to become operational in 2016 that comprises of two storage rings (1.5 GeV and 3 GeV) and a 3 GeV Linac. The 3 GeV storage ring has been designed using to a novel multibend achromat scheme giving an emittance below 0.3 nm rad which means that it will become the world's brightest storage ring-based light source. The MAX IV facility will become operational in 2016.
