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.
The newly launched Quantum Fundamentals, ARchitecture and Machines initiative will build upon existing strengths in theoretical and experimental quantum science and engineering at Stanford and SLAC.
“The Worlds Within” and “Fabrication of the Accelerator Structure,” now available digitally in high fidelity, tell the story of Stanford Linear Accelerator Center’s inception and construction.
Scientists, including researchers at SLAC, have only just begun to study the remarkably detailed map they created of a portion of the sky.
SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.
Astrophysicists use a catalog of extended gamma-ray sources spotted by Fermi spacecraft to home in on mysterious properties of deep space.
SLAC receives three awards for the development of quantum technology for dark matter searches and quantum computing.
