Scientists for the first time tracked ultrafast structural changes, captured in quadrillionths-of-a-second steps, as ring-shaped gas molecules burst open and unraveled.
X-ray studies at SLAC have observed an exotic property that could improve performance in ever-smaller computer components.
SLAC visiting scientist and consulting professor Claudio Pellegrini is honored for contributions to free-electron laser science.
A commercial X-ray source with roots in SLAC research enables multi-mode computer tomography scans that outperform routine scans in hospitals. The technique could potentially find widespread use in medicine and other fields.
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.
Scientists at SLAC and Utrecht University have identified how catalysts degrade when used to refine crude oil.
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.
Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have established the first endowed professorship in honor of Arthur Bienenstock.
Researchers use X-ray laser at SLAC to track light-triggered chemical reactions in a molecule that serves as a simple model for the conversion of solar energy into fuel.
A SLAC experiment has provided the first detailed look at the creation of an exotic superhot, compressed concoction known as "warm dense matter" – the stuff believed to be at the core of giant gas planets like Jupiter.
