SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
The approach could advance our understanding of fundamental forces under extreme conditions with applications from astrophysics to fusion research.
In SLAC’s accelerator control room, shift lead Ben Ripman and a team of operators fine-tune X-ray beams for science experiments around the clock.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
SLAC researchers say their new method could make it easier to study interactions of ultrabright X-rays with matter.
SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao spoke to the Stanford University Faculty Senate at its Feb. 21 meeting.
“The Worlds Within” and “Fabrication of the Accelerator Structure,” now available digitally in high fidelity, tell the story of Stanford Linear Accelerator Center’s inception and construction.
Ultrafast manipulation of material properties with light could stimulate the development of novel electronics, including quantum computers.
An advisory committee is evaluating proposals for first experiments at SLAC’s future FACET-II accelerator facility.
Switches like this one, discovered with SLAC’s ultrafast ‘electron camera’, could offer a new, simple path to storing data in next-generation devices.
