MAX IV is a synchrotron light facility that began operations in 2016. Hosted by Lund University, it is the world’s most brilliant synchrotron light source, capable of viewing material structures atom by atom. MAX IV facilitates discoveries of new structures at nanolevel, and scientists are able to monitor chemical processes in real time. The facility can house up to 26 beamlines. At full capacity, more than 2000 scientists are expected to conduct experiments at MAX IV every year.
