What’s the difference between a synchrotron and a cyclotron, anyway?
Four Stanford students receive funding for work on novel accelerators and beams for SLAC's X-ray laser.
A new device at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory allows researchers to explore the properties and dynamics of molecules with circularly polarized, or spiraling, light.
Manipulating electron beams of X-ray lasers with regular laser light could potentially open up new scientific avenues.
Researchers have reached another milestone in the development of a promising technology that could lead to more efficient and powerful particle accelerators.
The lab’s signature particle highway prepares to enter another era of transformative science as the home of the LCLS-II X-ray laser.
Invented at SLAC, “GREEN-RF” captures and recycles energy that would otherwise go to waste in accelerating particles for research, medicine, industry and communications.
Accelerator scientists are in demand at labs and beyond.
Computer simulations and lab experiments help researchers understand the violent universe and could potentially lead to new technologies that benefit humankind.
CERN physicist Edda Gschwendtner explains why we need big machines to study tiny particles.
