Researchers at SLAC have for the first time seen a spin current – an inherent magnetic property common to all electrons – as it travels across materials.
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, scientists got a textbook-worthy result that may change the way matter is probed at X-ray free-electron lasers.
Graham George and Ingrid Pickering, a husband and wife X-ray research team, are co-leading a new study in Bangladesh to test whether selenium supplements can protect people from arsenic poisoning.
Scientists have revealed never-before-seen details of how our brain sends rapid-fire messages between its cells using SLAC's X-ray laser.
Scientists and engineers in South Korea will soon be using SLAC’s signature high-power radio-frequency amplifiers, called XL4 klystrons, to get the most out of their new X-ray laser.
A researcher interviewed SLAC and Stanford administrators, scientists and Nobel laureates and sifted through archival materials to better understand the drivers for change in SLAC’s science mission.
A biomedical breakthrough reveals never-before-seen details of the human body’s cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses.
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.
