A new X-ray laser technique allows scientists to home in on these single-electron triggers to better understand organic molecules that respond to light, including receptors in your eyes, plastic products and DNA building blocks that need to protect themselves from cancer-causing mutations.
Mike Dunne answers questions about ultrafast science.
Researchers at SLAC are already looking at the largely unexplored realm of attosecond science.
Our ultrafast science factsheet gives an overview of the femtosecond world.
Ryan Coffee, scientist at the Linac Coherent Light Source, explains in a video interview.
Physicist Phil Bucksbaum gives a brief introduction to Femtosecond Week at SLAC.
SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
SLAC experiments demonstrate a new way to access valence electrons, which are important in forming chemical bonds and determine many of a material’s properties.
More than 40 interns spent 10 weeks this summer helping SLAC researchers advance the use of the Linac Coherent Light Source.
