More than 300 gathered for a day-long symposium to celebrate the history and future of the pioneering X-ray laser.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
He helped lay the groundwork for SLAC’s LCLS X-ray laser and for the institute, which was founded to explore the science LCLS would enable.
SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao spoke to the Stanford University Faculty Senate at its Feb. 21 meeting.
Using a 5,000-mile network loop operated by ESnet, researchers at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) recently transferred 1 petabyte in 29 hours, with encryption and checksumming, beating last year's record by 5 hours, an almost 15 percent improvement.
The annual conference for scientists who conduct research at SLAC’s light sources engaged about 400 researchers in talks, workshops and discussions.
A team of electrical designers develops specialized microchips for a broad range of scientific applications, including X-ray science and particle physics.
Their work will deepen our understanding of matter in extreme conditions and fundamental particle physics.
Tony Heinz and Z-X Shen will receive funding for research focused on catalysis and novel states of matter.
The new technology could allow next-generation instruments to explore the atomic world in ever more detail.
