Laboratory Directed R&D
System tests at SLAC continue with 32 light sensors - up from a single one - in a small-scale version of the future experiment, which will use nearly 500 of them.
Instead of searching for dark matter particles, a new device will search for dark matter waves.
A new device could open new avenues for the generation of high-frequency radiation with applications in science, radar, communications, security and medical imaging.
A serendipitous discovery lets researchers spy on this self-assembly process for the first time with SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron. What they learn will help them fine-tune precision materials for electronics, catalysis and more.
A recent discovery by scientists from the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis could lead to a new, more sustainable way to make ethanol without corn or other crops.
Propagating “charge density wave” fluctuations are seen in superconducting copper oxides for the first time.
A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to a new study led by scientists at Stanford and SLAC.
Frederico Fiuza and his team are conducting thorough investigations of plasma physics to discern the fundamental processes that accelerate particles.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Award honors accomplishments in condensed matter physics and electrochemistry at SSRL.
