Title The MAX-lab Story; From Microtron to MAX IV
  • M. Eriksson
    MAX-lab, Lund, Sweden
Abstract The MAX story started with the design and construction of a small Race-Track Microtron 1973-1979. This microtron was later followed by the synchrotron radiation storage rings MAX I, MAX II, MAX III and the MAX IV facility, the latter consisting of two storage rings operated at 1.5 and 3 Gev respectively and also including a full energy injector linac. It was quite clear from the very beginning that conventional accelerator technology not was matching the boundary conditions in terms of the staff size and limited economical resources at MAX. We had to find new technical solutions based on mass-produced industrial components and an extensive usage of CNC machining to match the turbulent development of synchrotron radiation sources. This article describes some of the most important features of the accelerators developed at MAX-lab and covers also the design philosophy behind the early ideas for designing a close to Diffraction Limited Storage Ring. Finally, the author and MAX staff wants to thank the prize committee for the prestigious Wideröe prize and thank all our international colleagues world-wide.
