Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
A 200-terawatt laser at SLAC will synchronize with X-ray laser pulses to precisely measure more extreme temperatures and pressures in exotic forms of matter.
The former SLAC and Stanford researcher will be recognized during a SLAC conference next month for her work in studying nanoscale magnetic and electronic processes.
Using SLAC's X-ray laser, researchers have for the first time directly observed myoglobin move within quadrillionths of a second after a bond breaks and the protein releases a gas molecule.
A SLAC study observed silica's shockingly fast transformation into a highly compressed form found in meteor craters.
A major international effort at SLAC is focused on improving our views of intact viruses, living bacteria and other tiny samples using the brightest X-ray light on Earth.
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.
Scientists have revealed never-before-seen details of how our brain sends rapid-fire messages between its cells using SLAC's 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.
Researchers have used an X-ray laser to record, in detail never possible before, the microscopic motion and effects of shock waves rippling across diamond.
