Due to the closing of the present MAX-lab in December 2015 there will be no more general calls for proposals.

Fast Access proposals for macromolecular crystallography (MX) are accepted at any time.

MAX IV Laboratory is currently operating two storage rings for the production of synchrotron radiation for both national and international researchers. In addition it is engaged in the construction of a new facility to become operational in 2016 that comprises of two storage rings (1.5 Gev and 3 Gev) and a 3 GeV Linac. The two operating storage rings are MAX II (1.5 GeV, established in 1997) and MAX III (700 MeV, established in 2007). As a common injector for both stoarge rings a 400 MeV linac is used. More than 1000 individual researchers from more than 30 countries visit the laboratory every year. The laboratory operates beamlines covering a wide spectral range from IR through UV, VUV, soft x-rays into the x-ray regime.
