An X-ray laser experiment could lead to new drugs that lessen the side effects caused by powerful painkillers like morphine.
Scientists have used an X-ray laser at SLAC to get the first glimpse of the transition state where two atoms begin to form a weak bond on the way to becoming a molecule.
Researchers working at SLAC have captured the first X-ray portraits of living bacteria.
Research reveals that the bacterial immune system can better destroy viral attackers by saving genetic records of previously encountered viruses.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
Stanford and SLAC engineers observed electrons at work during catalytic reactions. Their findings challenge long-held theories about some catalysts, opening the door to new or improved renewable energy applications.
A scientist at Germany’s DESY lab who participated in pioneering studies at SLAC's LCLS has been awarded a scientific prize by a research foundation.
Scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are combining the speed and precision of robots with one of the brightest X-ray lasers on the planet for pioneering studies of proteins important to biology and drug discovery.
More than a dozen energy-storage companies have streamlined access to research facilities and expertise at SLAC under a new cooperative R&D agreement with CalCharge.
In this lecture, SLAC’s Ryan Coffee explains how researchers are beginning to use pattern recognition and machine learning to study chemical reactions at the level of atoms and molecules with the LCLS X-ray laser.
