The cryogenic plant responsible for keeping LCLS-II’s superconducting linear accelerator at just a few degrees above absolute zero recently received its first warm helium compressors.
In October, SLAC installed the first of LCLS-II’s cryogenic “feed caps” and “end caps.”
About 400 people attended the annual conference and workshops for scientists who conduct experiments at SLAC’s light sources.
The early career award from SLAC’s X-ray laser recognizes Kjaer’s work in ultrafast X-ray science.
Over the next five years they’ll work on getting significantly more information about how catalysts work and improving biological imaging methods.
A makeover of the historic Beam Switch Yard prepares the lab for the installation of the LCLS X-ray laser upgrade.
The method dramatically reduces the amount of virus material required and allows scientists to get results several times faster.
Berkeley Lab is overseeing development of specialized undulators that will produce X-ray light at LCLS-II by wiggling electrons.
