Abstract

This paper describes the preliminary design of the BioMAX beamline at the 3 GeV ring of the MAX IV facility, focusing on the optics and x-ray beam performance. The MAX IV facility will include two storage rings with 1.5 GeV and 3.0 GeV electron energy and a linac serving both as injector for the two rings and feeding a short pulse facility. BioMAX is one of the first seven beamlines funded at the MAX IV facility. It is a multipurpose high-throughput beamline for macromolecular crystallography. The beamline aims to be robust and simple to operate with a beam benefiting from the properties of the MAX IV 3 GeV ring. However it does not aim at the smallest beam or crystal sizes since it is foreseen that it will be complemented with a microfocus beamline aiming at a beam size of 1 mu m. The beamline experiment setup will be highly automated, both in terms of sample handling hardware and data analysis, including feedback to the data collection. The BioMAX beamline is planned to be in operation in 2016.
