ForMAX beamline – what it is and how to apply

Kim Nygård, project manager and beamline scientist at the MAX IV laboratory in Lund

The first webinar will be split in two parts. In the first part, we will introduce and explain the MAX IV Laboratory as well as the ForMAX instrument, including dedicated sample environments and means for sample preparation. In the second part, we will guide the audience through each important step of a successful experiment at ForMAX.

Kim received his PhD in physics from the University of Helsinki in 2007. He has held positions at the Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, France, and University of Gothenburg, before joining the MAX IV Laboratory in 2017 to lead the ForMAX project.
