Users research and highlights

Rooms: see session

26M-Soft I
26M-Soft II
26M-Hard I
  • 26M-Soft I: Soft X-ray beamlines.
    Room: Brainstorm
    Here we cover results from FlexPES and FinEstBeAMS beamlines, Talks are sub-grouped by PES, luminescence, RIXS techniques and low density matter (LDM) users communities.
  • 26M-Soft II: Soft X-ray beamlines.
    Room: Discussion
    The session presents users results made possible with APXPS (Ambient Pressure X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) measurements.
  • 26M-Hard I: Hard X-ray beamlines
    Room: Knowledge
    Users results from Balder, FemtoMAX, DanMAX and CoSAXS beamlines.
  • 26M-Imaging:
    Room: Theatre
    The session will present users’ science from NanoMAX and MAXPEEM, as well as looking ahead for users at SoftiMAX.
  • 26M-SB: Structural biology:
    Room: Beginning
    The session covers recent research highlight from the MAX IV structural biology user community. Results presented during the session were derived from experiments conducted at the BioMAX and FemtoMAX beamlines. The first part of the session will cover molecular interactions and methods development, whereas studies with relevance for small-molecule drug discovery will be presented in the second part. Protein Crystallography is the method at the core of the research in all presentations.
