Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
Scientists have used an X-ray laser at SLAC to get the first glimpse of the transition state where two atoms begin to form a weak bond on the way to becoming a molecule.
Researchers working at SLAC have captured the first X-ray portraits of living bacteria.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
He’s known for exploring fundamental properties of novel materials on the nanoscale, and for developing new tools for the exploration.
A scientist at Germany’s DESY lab who participated in pioneering studies at SLAC's LCLS has been awarded a scientific prize by a research foundation.
Researchers captured the highest-resolution snapshots ever taken with an X-ray laser that show changes in a protein’s structure over time.
An experiment at SLAC provided the first fleeting glimpse of the atomic structure of a material as it entered a state resembling room-temperature superconductivity – a long-sought phenomenon in which materials might conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency under everyday conditions.
SLAC and RadiaBeam Systems have teamed up to construct a “dechirper” that will allow scientists to adjust the “color spectrum” of X-ray pulses in pioneering LCLS experiments.
Scientists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are combining the speed and precision of robots with one of the brightest X-ray lasers on the planet for pioneering studies of proteins important to biology and drug discovery.
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.
