Advanced Accelerator R&D
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.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded $13.5 million for an international effort to build a working particle accelerator the size of a shoebox based on an innovative technology known as “accelerator on a chip.”
President Obama honored a SLAC and UCLA scientist for work that paved the way for the brightest sources of X-ray light on the planet.
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.
Scientists and engineers in South Korea will soon be using SLAC’s signature high-power radio-frequency amplifiers, called XL4 klystrons, to get the most out of their new X-ray laser.
A new technology at SLAC uses high-energy electrons to unravel motions faster than a tenth of a trillionth of a second in materials, opening up new research opportunities in ultrafast science.
SLAC visiting scientist and consulting professor Claudio Pellegrini is honored for contributions to free-electron laser science.
