DiffMAX national workshop

Event Dates: 2017-03-27 to 2017-03-28   

The workshop takes place at Sankt Jörgen Park, Göteborg and is co-organized by MAX IV and Chalmers.
DiffMAX is a beamline project aiming at meeting the needs of material research using the MAX IV source in the hard x-ray range (3-45 keV).

In its current conceptual description, DiffMAX offers two experimental stations, one providing excellent capabilities for powder diffraction (PXRD), and one flexible station equipped for receiving large experimental environments and with flexible and high spatial accuracy detector positioning allowing for grazing incidence diffraction and scattering techniques on solids and liquids (SXRD, GIXD, GISAXS, Reflectivity). Thanks to its flexibility, the second station will also allow other types of diffraction/scattering experiment (High pressure or single crystal for example). In addition, the possibility to add a HAXPES capability is under study.

The philosophy of the beamline will be to provide a competent and fertile environment to foster and exploit innovative ideas and measurement techniques for all types of material sciences.

In this workshop, we wish to gather the different materials science communities, inform them of the possibilities offered by the MAX IV source, and provide a forum to influence the detailed beamline design so that it meets the demands of the communities in an optimum way.

The aim of the workshop is to produce a document containing a list of scientific cases together with a conceptual and technical description of the beamline. This will be accomplished by working groups during the workshop.
