High-speed X-ray camera reveals ultrafast atomic motions at the root of organisms’ ability to turn light into biological function.
Method’s unprecedented combination of atomic resolution and extraordinary speed opens up new opportunities for ultrafast science.
Their results suggest a more efficient way to store energy from solar and wind power by converting it into renewable fuels.
Toward next-generation electronics, better medications and green energy solutions: "The First Five Years" point to a bright future of high-impact discovery at LCLS.
The Precourt Institute for Energy and the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy at Stanford have awarded 12 faculty seed grants totaling $2.1 million for groundbreaking research on clean energy, including three grants to SLAC-Stanford collaborations.
SLAC, Stanford scientists discover that bombarding and stretching a catalyst opens holes on its surface and makes it much more reactive. Potential applications include making hydrogen fuel.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
X-ray research on 80-million-year-old fossilized burrows, likely the work of tiny marine worms, is helping scientists understand how living organisms affected the chemistry of the sea floor.
A researcher who performed a variety of X-ray experiments at SLAC’s synchrotron will receive an annual scientific award during a SLAC conference next month.
Using a new technology for ultrafast science, researchers have for the first time observed extremely rapid atomic motions in a three-atom-thick layer of a promising material that could be used in next-generation solar cells, electronics and catalysts.
