Manipulating electron beams of X-ray lasers with regular laser light could potentially open up new scientific avenues.
A SLAC/Stanford study opens a new path to producing laser pulses that are just billionths of a billionth of a second long by inducing ‘high harmonic generation’ in a solid.
Laser light exposes the properties of materials used in batteries and electronics.
Computer simulations and lab experiments help researchers understand the violent universe and could potentially lead to new technologies that benefit humankind.
For the first time in three years, LCLS has added a new instrument to its set of experimental stations. See photos of the brand new MFX hutch, LCLS’s seventh instrument.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded $13.5 million for an international effort to build a working particle accelerator the size of a shoebox based on an innovative technology known as “accelerator on a chip.”
A team led by SLAC scientists combined powerful magnetic pulses with some of the brightest X-rays on the planet to discover a surprising 3-D effect that appears linked to a mysterious phenomenon known as high-temperature superconductivity.
A 200-terawatt laser at SLAC will synchronize with X-ray laser pulses to precisely measure more extreme temperatures and pressures in exotic forms of matter.
A SLAC study observed silica's shockingly fast transformation into a highly compressed form found in meteor craters.
A major international effort at SLAC is focused on improving our views of intact viruses, living bacteria and other tiny samples using the brightest X-ray light on Earth.
