Contributions to LIGO have come from many Stanford teams, including SLAC, Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics and the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences.
This surprising finding has potentially broad implications, from X-ray imaging of single particles to fusion research.
For the first time in three years, LCLS has added a new instrument to its set of experimental stations. See photos of the brand new MFX hutch, LCLS’s seventh instrument.
Researchers at SLAC have found a simple new way to study very delicate biological samples – like proteins at work in photosynthesis and components of protein-making machines called ribosomes – at the atomic scale using SLAC's X-ray laser.
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.
