Earlier this year LTH's management queried our researchers on how to involve in coming-up ESS- and MAX IV-activities. A number of entries arrived describing areas and possible partnerships that could have a potential in fruitful research collaborations. This goes for both accelerator technology and experiments that will be performed in the MAX IV beamlines during the coming years.
A variety of proposals were posted, among others they dealt with characterization, accelerator design, IoT, signal processing, big data, cloud, assembly technology, FPGA and more. There is no lack of ideas and creativity.
In order to boost dialogue, we arranged a trip to MAX IV. The site is in good progress towards initial operation and the research groupleaders together with those who had shown collaboration potential all took the local bus (nr20!) to the brand new site.
