NanoMAX beamline - The hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline



    Namn på nationell/internationell infrastruktur som denna infrastruktur tillhör

    MAX IV Laboratory


    NanoMAX is a hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline at the MAX IV Laboratory. NanoMAX takes full advantage of MAX IV’s exceptionally low emittance and the resulting coherence properties of the X-ray beam. The use of diffraction-limited optics will allow producing tightly focused coherent beams enabling imaging applications using diffraction, scattering, fluorescence and other methods, at unprecedented resolution. With its two experimental stations designed to offer, the first, the smallest focal spot, and the other, large flexibility at the expense of a larger focal spot for various experimental geometries, NanoMAX will offer exciting applications for a wide variety of research fields, such as materials science, life science, earth science, nanoscience, physics, chemistry and biology.
    The beamline has two experimental stations where one is optimized to provide the highest spatial resolution while the second one

    Primary experimental methods are:
    Coherent X-ray diffractive imaging methods
    X-ray fluorescence microscopy
    X-ray absorption and phase contrast microscopy

    Utrustning och resurser

    X-ray microscopy with various detection modes and sample environments for a broad range of imaging needs where very high spatial resolution is needed.

    Styrning av infrastrukturen

    The beamline is headed by a beamline scientist, time for experiments is allocated through a peer review process by an external program advisory committee. The scientific scope of the beamline is defined in interaction with the management of MAX IV Laboratory and the Scientific Advisory Committee.
