Researchers have used an X-ray laser to record, in detail never possible before, the microscopic motion and effects of shock waves rippling across diamond.
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.
