LCLS Coherent X-ray Imaging (CXI)
Using SLAC's X-ray laser, researchers have for the first time directly observed myoglobin move within quadrillionths of a second after a bond breaks and the protein releases a gas molecule.
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.
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, scientists got a textbook-worthy result that may change the way matter is probed at X-ray free-electron lasers.
A biomedical breakthrough reveals never-before-seen details of the human body’s cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses.
A team led by Stanford University scientists is using software to breathe new life into results from past biological experiments at SLAC’s X-ray laser.
An experiment at SLAC's X-ray laser has revealed in atomic detail how a hypertension drug binds to a cellular receptor that plays a key role in regulating blood pressure.
Developed at SLAC’s LCLS, it could also yield new information from hard-to-study samples in materials science, chemistry and other fields.
An X-ray laser experiment could lead to new drugs that lessen the side effects caused by powerful painkillers like morphine.
Researchers captured the highest-resolution snapshots ever taken with an X-ray laser that show changes in a protein’s structure over time.
Scientists have for the first time mapped the atomic structure of a protein within a living cell. The technique, which peered into cells with an X-ray laser, could allow scientists to explore some components of living cells as never before.
