Status of the MAX IV Laboratory

Abstract

On the day of the 2016 summer solstice, June 21, MAX IV, the new synchrotron radiation facility in Lund, Sweden, will be inaugurated. MAX IV is setting a new standard in terms of emittance, thereby providing beamlines with the best possible brilliance and coherence. At the same time, MAX IV continues a more than three-decades-long successful history of Swedish synchrotron-radiation-based research. The activities at the present MAX-lab, which officially started when the MAX I storage ring opened for users in 1986, have been concluded with a “last beamdump” ceremony for the MAX II and MAX III storage rings on December 13, 2015, Saint Lucy's Day. In Sweden, the winter solstice is celebrated with a festival of light.
