The magnet design of the MAX IV 1.5 GeV storage ring is conceptually identical to the MAX III and the MAX IV 3 GeV storage ring magnets, replacing the conventional support girder + discrete magnets scheme of previous third-generation synchrotron radiation light sources with an integrated design having several consecutive magnet elements precision-machined out of a common solid iron block. Detailed magnet design was made using the Opera-3d finite element code, with a model of the full magnet block being simulated. The magnet design was iterated against the lattice design, with the final magnet design that went into production being the 4th iteration.
