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.
Scientists have used SLAC’s X-ray laser to produce detailed images of tiny cellular structures that play a major role in Earth’s life-sustaining carbon cycle.
A study at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory suggests for the first time how scientists might deliberately engineer superconductors that work at higher temperatures.
SLAC will participate in Discovery Days at AT&T Park – the concluding highlight of the fourth annual Bay Area Science Festival.
Nobel Prize-winning scientists and other prominent researchers, including new directors for SLAC's X-ray laser and synchrotron, gave talks during an Oct. 7-10 event.
Johnson and his team assist scientists with synchrotron experiments and work to keep X-ray beamlines running at SLAC.
Since the success of its inaugural experiment five years ago, thousands of scientists have used SLAC's X-ray laser to probe previously unreachable extremes in fields ranging from biology to astrophysics.
SSRL protein crystallography expert joined research effort that could lead to a safe and effective alternative to chemotherapy.
Experiments at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory solve a long-standing mystery in the role calcium atoms serve in a chemical reaction that releases oxygen into the air we breathe.
A comprehensive look at how tiny particles in a lithium ion battery electrode behave shows that rapid-charging the battery and using it to do high-power, rapidly draining work may not be as damaging as researchers had thought – and that the benefits of slow draining and charging may have been overestimated.
