MAX-lab, The MAX IV Laboratory, located at the northern campus of Lund University, Lund, Sweden, is a synchrotron light source facility and a Swedish National Laboratory. The lab operates three storage rings; MAX I (550 MeV, opened 1986), MAX II (1,5 GeV, opened 1997) and MAX III (700 MeV, opened 2008). MAX-lab supports about 600 users from over 30 countries annually. The facility operates 14 beamlines with a total of 19 independent experimental stations, supporting a wide range of experimental techniques such as macromolecularcrystallography, electronspectroscopy, nanolithography and production of tagged photons for photo-nuclear experiments.
Construction of the next generation synchrotron radiation source in Lund, MAX IV, began in November 2010.
