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.”
The SLAC Photowalk took a group of 17 photographers, both amateur and professional, behind the scenes to photograph SLAC's world-class science facilities, including the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL).
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.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
President Obama honored a SLAC and UCLA scientist for work that paved the way for the brightest sources of X-ray light on the planet.
A physicist at Argonne National Laboratory has been recognized for pioneering experiments at SLAC that helped establish a new way to study the structure of complex materials.
X-ray research on 80-million-year-old fossilized burrows, likely the work of tiny marine worms, is helping scientists understand how living organisms affected the chemistry of the sea floor.
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.
The former SLAC and Stanford researcher will be recognized during a SLAC conference next month for her work in studying nanoscale magnetic and electronic processes.
A SLAC study observed silica's shockingly fast transformation into a highly compressed form found in meteor craters.
