Claudio Pellegrini, a distinguished professor emeritus of physics at UCLA and adjunct professor of photon science at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his “distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.”
Researchers at SLAC are already looking at the largely unexplored realm of attosecond science.
Our ultrafast science factsheet gives an overview of the femtosecond world.
Accelerator physicist Agostino Marinelli discusses how SLAC's X-ray laser makes femtosecond light.
SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
Sila Kiliccote, Jodi Verleger and Lydia Young demonstrate what it means to live SLAC’s values.
As it evolves, SLAC's linear accelerator illustrates some important technologies from the history of accelerator science.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
Two recently funded computing projects work toward developing cutting-edge scientific applications for future exascale supercomputers that can perform at least a billion billion computing operations per second.
