Welcome to the first ForMAX User Workshop!

MAX IV has together with academic and industrial partners recently secured funding for the construction of ForMAX - a combined scattering and imaging beamline for structural characterization of complex materials from atomic/molecular to mm length scales. A special focus of ForMAX will be novel wood-based materials, but it will also be open for other user communities. ForMAX is at the moment in design phase, and we are collecting the needs of the future user community.

At the first ForMAX User Workshop we will have three inspiring talks by leading experts on small- and wide-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS), scanning SAXS/WAXS, and tomography. We will also have briefings about ForMAX, the national research platform Treesearch (in Swedish) of which ForMAX is a part, and the ForMAX preproject. Finally, we will organize group discussions about your specific needs at ForMAX.

Come and help make ForMAX a success!

Kim Nygård, Aleksandar Matic, and Daniel Söderberg
