Vision & Mission

Synchrotron beamlines

The Swedish research council (VR) has invested in the construction and operation of a Swedish Materials Science (SMS) beamline (photon energy of 40-150 keV) at the synchrotron radiation facility PETRA III, DESY, Hamburg. The collaboration agreement with DESY and the new SMS beamline provide unique capabilities for Swedish materials research.
