MAX Lab Magnetic Field Measurement System


MAX IV Laboratory is a national laboratory hosted by Lund University. It operates accelerators producing x-rays of very high intensity and quality. Almost 1000 scientists per year come to the lab and use the x-rays for scientific research making the invisible visible. It is presently building a new project which will be the brightest x-ray source in the world when opening to users in 2016.
