Make use of MAX IV in your research


You have the opportunity to learn about and influence the scientific possibilities at MAX IV Laboratory, the Swedish National Synchrotron Facility, during a workshop in Uppsala, 8–10 March 2017.

  • Biological processes, cells and histology
  • Biomaterials; colloids and foams, cellulose, lignin, polymers, textiles
  • Cultural heritage; art and archaeology
  • Developmental biology & Palaeontology
  • Food & packaging
  • MedTech: implants, dental care, Nano- particles
  • Plants
  • Pre-clinical studies & animal models


These are the topics of discussion and if you are a researcher in any of these fields looking for ways to expand your scientific tool-box and knowledge – sign up for the  workshop!

Inspiring talks by experienced scientists followed by discussions and break-outs in smaller groups will ensure that the development of the scientific port-folio at MAX IV Laboratory fulfils the needs of the Scandinavian research communities. Special emphasis will be on the use of imaging methods and defining the scope of the bio imaging beamline. The workshop also includes technical keynote lectures by scientists from research facilities in Europe, USA and Canada on the following imaging related topics:

  • Small animal imaging & therapy at a synchrotron
  • X-ray fluorescence spectroscopic & cryo imaging
  • Nano imaging with coherent X-rays, SAXS
  • Phase constrast tomographic microscopy
  • Sample preparation and contrasting
  • Image analysis and visualisation


The workshop is free of charge but seats are limited so please register today! Registration and detailed information:
