Tuesday, October 26th 13.00-16.30 @ MAX IV 33rd User Meeting – MAX IV in focus –


About the workshop

New generation synchrotrons combined with recent developments of ultrafast detectors has lead to unique possibilities to track industrial materials, processes and devices in real-time (operando conditions). This session combines views from industry, synchrotron facilities, and researchers. The needs, challenges, and outlooks from industry representatives will be presented followed by an overview of current state-of-the-art operando diffraction capabilities that can meet these challenges, presented by large-scale facility scientists. Finally, academic researchers will present ongoing and future projects where in-situ/operando synchrotron diffraction is used to address industrial collaborations.


If you are registered for the User Meeting you can join the workshop. Haven’t registered yet? Register for the 33rd MAX IV User meeting – MAX IV in focus- here. Deadline for on-site participation registration is 11th October and online participation is 18th October.
