Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
Researchers produced an underwater sound with an intensity that eclipses that of a rocket launch while investigating what happens when they blast tiny jets of water with X-ray laser pulses.
A better understanding of how these receptors work could enable scientists to design better therapeutics for sleep disorders, cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
A new method could be used to look at chemical reactions that other techniques can’t catch, for instance in catalysis, photovoltaics, peptide and combustion research.
More than 300 gathered for a day-long symposium to celebrate the history and future of the pioneering X-ray laser.
In SLAC’s accelerator control room, shift lead Ben Ripman and a team of operators fine-tune X-ray beams for science experiments around the clock.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
He helped lay the groundwork for SLAC’s LCLS X-ray laser and for the institute, which was founded to explore the science LCLS would enable.
SLAC researchers say their new method could make it easier to study interactions of ultrabright X-rays with matter.
Researchers used a unique approach to learn more about what happens to silicon under intense pressure.
