MAX IV organised an online workshop at Jönköping University 4th February 2022.

The initiative has been led by the User Office and Industry Relations Office at MAX IV in collaboration with JU Associate Professor Ehsan Ghassemali. We aimed to reach new potential users without previous experience with synchrotron characterisation to show them the potential of the facility and how can their research benefit from MAX IV. Moreover, we hoped to engage existing users to discuss key points necessary for preparing a successful proposal that will allow them to be granted beam time. Additionally, students and early-stage researchers were encouraged to participate as we hope they might be future MAX IV visitors. The participants had the opportunity to interact with our staff, pose questions and discuss specifically the analysis that can be performed with their samples. The selected beamlines to be presented have been chosen based on specific research interest input provided by JU researchers.

We would like to thank all the participants for showing interest in the facility and hope to meet them soon at MAX IV beamlines.
