Two projects will look for ways to link individual quantum devices into networks for quantum computing and ultrasensitive detectors.
The next revolutionary X-ray laser in a class of its own, LCLS-II, is under construction at SLAC, with support from four other DOE national laboratories.
The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
Four large meshes woven from 2 miles of metal wire will extract potential signs of dark matter particles.
SLAC completed its work on ComCam, a commissioning device to be installed in Chile later this year.
Building the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope also means solving extraordinary technological challenges.
Its electron beams will drive the generation of up to a million ultrabright X-ray flashes per second.
SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
Monika Schleier-Smith and Kent Irwin explain how their projects in quantum information science could help us better understand black holes and dark matter.
