The MAX IV Laboratory is a national laboratory located in Lund. The facility supports three research areas: accelerator physics, research using synchrotron radiation and nuclear physics using high-energy electrons.

The MAX IV Laboratory, which has been operating since the mid-1980s, has been responsible for a number of advances in various fields of research including environmental science, life science and nano technology. The new MAX IV will be one of the most advances synchrotron facilities in the world and offer the research community a new and very powerful tool. Experiments will be faster thereby giving more researchers access to laboratory time. The MAX IV project was funded in April 2009 and the construction work at the site started November 22, 2010. Major breakthroughs are expected and we will see advances in materials science, biology, medicine and many other fields of research.
