MAX IV - MAX IV Laboratory

Program Description: MAX IV Laboratory is a national laboratory hosted by Lund University. It operates accelerators producing x-rays of very high intensity and quality. It is presently building a new project which will be the brightest x-ray source in the world when opening to users in 2016. The MAX IV Laboratory was established July 1, 2010 as a national research infrastructure hosted by Lund University through an agreement between the Swedish Research Council, VINNOVA, Lund University, and Region Skåne. The MAX IV project was initiated through the funding provided by VR, VINNOVA, Region Skåne, and LU for the construction of the accelerator complex, new laboratory facilities, project office, and other project services. The Swedish Research Council (VR) provides a major part of the funding for operating MAX-lab. As part of the agreement between VR and Lund University (LU) LU covers the rent of the buildings used by MAX-lab and the associated cost of electricity and water and also provides a number of administrative services to the MAX IV Laboratory.

Year Started: 1987.

Organization Description: Almost 1000 scientists per year come to the lab and use the x-rays for scientific research making the invisible visible.
