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.

Rebooted Muon Experiment Tests Detector Design at SLAC

Last year, a monster magnet set out from Brookhaven National Lab on an epic trek by land and sea to Fermilab, where it will serve as the heart of a search for evidence of new subatomic particles. Last month, researchers came to SLAC to test the eyes and nerves of the same experiment: a cutting-edge design for a new detector.

A New Way to Create Compact Light Sources

SLAC scientists have found a new way to produce bright pulses of light from accelerated electrons that could shrink "light source" technology used around the world since the 1970s to examine details of atoms and chemical reactions
