Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
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.
X-ray laser snapshots give scientists a new tool for probing trillionths-of-a-second atomic motions in 2-D materials
SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao spoke to the Stanford University Faculty Senate at its Feb. 21 meeting.
A better understanding of these systems will aid in developing next-generation energy technologies.
Using an X-ray laser, researchers watched atoms rotate on the surface of a material that was demagnetized in millionths of a billionth of a second.
New research will help in the quest to design low-cost drugs that can tackle postpartum bleeding and other conditions without severe side effects.
In a major step forward, SLAC’s X-ray laser captures all four stable states of the process that produces the oxygen we breathe, as well as fleeting steps in between. The work opens doors to understanding the past and creating a greener future.
