Early-career physicist Jonathan LeyVa helps build one of the world’s most sensitive dark matter detectors.
Two projects will look for ways to link individual quantum devices into networks for quantum computing and ultrasensitive detectors.
SLAC/Stanford scientists and their colleagues find a new way to efficiently convert CO2 into the building block for sustainable liquid fuels.
At SLAC’s FACET facility, researchers have produced an intense electron beam by 'sneaking’ electrons into plasma, demonstrating a method that could be used in future compact discovery machines that explore the subatomic world.
The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
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.
Monika Schleier-Smith and Kent Irwin explain how their projects in quantum information science could help us better understand black holes and dark matter.
