An international evaluation of the Max IV technical concept

Synchrotron radiation is a useful tool in many scientific fields including nanoscience and condensed matter physics, materials science and engineering, structural chemistry, environmental science and geosciences, life sciences and medical imaging and therapy.

The MAX-laboratory in Lund has proposed a new synchrotron radiation facility, named MAX IV, intended to deliver spontaneous as well as coherent radiation of very high quality over a broad spectral range. A panel of international experts has scrutinized the technical part of the MAX IV proposal and the result of their evaluation is presented in this report.
