The MAX IV Laboratory is a user facility. Its mission is to provide the best opportunities for the user community by continuing to improve and operate the beamlines at MAX-lab in an optimal way and by creating well-functioning beamlines that fully exploit the pioneering MAX IV accelerators and by strong attention to the needs of the research community and innovation opportunities.
The MAX IV source will be the most brilliant synchrotron light source in the World and will by far exceed the performance of other third generation synchrotron radiation facilities.
The unsurpassed brightness and coherence of the MAX IV sources will, in particular, facilitate imaging and microscopy methods with unprecedented spatial resolution and simultaneous sensitivity to chemical, electronic, geometric, magnetic, etc. structure. This vast potential gives the MAX IV Laboratory outstanding possibilities to become an internationally leading facility for the use of synchrotron radiation in virtually all areas of science and technology.
