… it’s a super advanced X-Ray tool
The aerial images of MAX IV Laboratory bring to mind many things, creating discussion about the world's most brilliant light source.
The MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists with the most brilliant X-rays for research. It will make the invisible visible. The X-rays will be used to understand, explain and improve the world, they will enable the study of materials in order to improve them - beyond the performance that we know today.
MAX IV will also allow scientists to develop new materials and products such as medications with better and more precise functions and fewer side-effects, nanoparticles for different areas of application, including paints, catalysis or computing, or lighter and stronger packaging materials for the better shelf life and higher sustainability.
The "on time, on budget and on spec" MAX IV Laboratory marks yet another mile stone for Lund, Southern Sweden and Greater Copenhagen and plays a paramount role in positioning the region as a centre for materials science research in the years to come, not least with the development of the European Spallation Source (ESS) in the works.
The MAX IV Laboratory adds an impressive sight to be seen from the birds' view of Skåne. The eight kilometer long Öresund Bridge part of the link between Malmö and Copenhagen and the well known land mark Turning Torso, is now accompanied by the giant ring-like structure in the rolling fields Northeast of the university city of Lund; leaving a lot to the imagination, a beatiful ring with an invisible lord.
