Status of the Front Ends project at MAXIV

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


The MAX IV laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory for synchrotron radiation hosted by the Lund University. It will operate two storage rings to produce synchrotron light of very high intensity and quality over a broad wavelength range. A linear accelerator will feed these storage rings in topping up mode as well as serve as an electron source for a short pulse facility built on its extension. The storage rings have different sizes and operate at different energies: the MAX IV 1.5 GeV ring has 12 straight sections optimized for soft x-rays; while the MAX IV 3.0 GeV ring, has 20 straight sections, optimized for harder x-rays. In the initial stage of the project, five beamlines are foreseen to operate on the 3.0 GeV storage ring and an additional five on the 1.5 GeV ring. Each beamline requires a front end to interface the different characteristics in terms of vacuum level, heat loads, radiation safety, beam size and position, with respect to the storage ring. This paper describes the status of the different Front Ends project at MAXIV.
