The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
Maria Elena Monzani prepares an international team to search for clues to one of the biggest scientific mysteries.
SLAC/Stanford study of the population of satellite galaxies orbiting the Milky Way provides new clues about the particle nature of dark matter.
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.
SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
The approach could advance our understanding of fundamental forces under extreme conditions with applications from astrophysics to fusion research.
Monika Schleier-Smith and Kent Irwin explain how their projects in quantum information science could help us better understand black holes and dark matter.
The LSST camera integration and testing team inserted a raft of nine imaging sensors into the body of the ComCam. This miniature version of the LSST camera will be used for telescope commissioning. Check out photos of this and other recent activity from the LSST camera clean room.
