Imaging today, imaging tomorrow


Research programs that strongly benefit from imaging techniques are starting to be more and more present at MAX IV. The imaging session intends to provide a glimpse of the research being carried out at the NanoMAX beamline, the first of the Imaging group available to users. It also presents ongoing efforts and achievements on the important and necessary aspect of data analysis. The day concludes with inspirational talks towards future possibilities, ambitions and challenges on the beamlines in construction (SoftiMAX, MaxPEEM, DanMAX and ForMAX) that will operate imaging instruments. Along the day, users are welcome to be proactive and contribute on the three different “discussion” slots.

Invited speakers

Henrik Birkedal, Aarhus University
Danny Mannix, ESS
Vincent Jacques, University Paris Orsay
Filipe  Maia, Uppsala University
Mikael Thyrel, SLU Umeå
