Antimatter Catches a Wave at SLAC

A SLAC-led research team working at the lab’s FACET facility has demonstrated a new way of accelerating positrons that could help develop smaller, more economical future particle colliders.

Compact Light Source Improves CT Scans

A commercial X-ray source with roots in SLAC research enables multi-mode computer tomography scans that outperform routine scans in hospitals. The technique could potentially find widespread use in medicine and other fields.

Symmetry: Accelerating the Fight Against Cancer

As charged-particle therapies grow in popularity, physicists are working with other experts to make them smaller, cheaper and more effective—and more available to cancer patients in the United States.
