LUCCI R3i visit to MAX-IV
The R3i group organised an excursion to the MAX IV lab in the beginning of the summer 2015, where they had a giuded tour about the new and supermodern research facility in Lund. MAX-lab is a national electron accelerator laboratory for synchrotron radiation research, nuclear physics and accelerator physics. MAX-lab is now to be extended with MAX IV that will be 100 times more efficient than any existing comparable synchrotron radiation facility in the world.
The MAX IV lab is now in place for employees to make the final installation and startup the accelerator, and the lab will be inaugurated officially in June 2016. The MAX-IV will be able to recieve about 2500 scientits from all over the world. It can be used in a wide range of research fields, for example chemistry, geology, engineering, biology, medicin and nanotechnology.
