Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
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.
SLAC visiting scientist and consulting professor Claudio Pellegrini is honored for contributions to free-electron laser science.
An experiment at SLAC’s X-ray laser provides new insight into the ultrafast motions of a muscle protein in a basic biochemical reaction.
Anne Sakdinawat, a SLAC scientist, has been selected to receive a grant to advance her work in producing and using new types of X-ray imaging tools.
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.
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.
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.
A SLAC experiment has provided the first detailed look at the creation of an exotic superhot, compressed concoction known as "warm dense matter" – the stuff believed to be at the core of giant gas planets like Jupiter.
SLAC study of tiny nanocrystals provides new insight on the design and function of nanomaterials
Developed at SLAC’s LCLS, it could also yield new information from hard-to-study samples in materials science, chemistry and other fields.
