Chemistry & Catalysis
Explore the fourth dimension, from processes that occur in billions of years down to tiny slivers of a second.
Accelerator physicist Agostino Marinelli discusses how SLAC's X-ray laser makes femtosecond light.
Ryan Coffee, scientist at the Linac Coherent Light Source, explains in a video interview.
Physicist Phil Bucksbaum gives a brief introduction to Femtosecond Week at SLAC.
SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
Stanford and SLAC researchers are leading a multi-year effort to produce nitrogen-based fertilizers in a sustainable way, by inventing a solar-powered chemistry technology that can make it right on the farm and apply it directly to crops, drip-irrigation style.
Scientists at SLAC and Stanford have identified active carbon catalysts and developed an electrochemical cell designed to purify water in small villages.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Squeezing a platinum catalyst a fraction of a nanometer nearly doubles its catalytic activity, a finding that could lead to better fuel cells and other clean energy technologies.
