Max Iv

Coordinates: 55°43′39″N 13°13′59″E / 55.72737°N 13.23298°E / 55.72737; 13.23298 MAX IV is the planned next-generation synchrotron radiation facility in Lund, Sweden. Its design and planning has been carried out within the Swedish national laboratory, MAX-lab, which operates three accelerators for synchrotron radiation research.

On 27 April 2009 the Swedish Ministry of Education and Research, Swedish Research Council, Lund University, Region Skåne and Vinnova, a Swedish government funding agency, decided to fund the research center.[1]

The construction site of MAX IV,[2] on the fields of Brunnshög in Lund North East, has been opened in 2010.The new laboratories, including two storage rings and a full-energy linac, will be built here. The larger of the two storage rings has a circumference of 528 meters, operates at 3 GeV energy, and has been optimized for high-brightness x-rays. The smaller storage ring (circumference 96 meters) is operated at 1.5 GeV energy and has been optimized for UV.
