Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
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.
Scientists have used SLAC’s X-ray laser to produce detailed images of tiny cellular structures that play a major role in Earth’s life-sustaining carbon cycle.
A new experimental station in development at SLAC will expand capabilities for atomic-scale explorations in human health, biology, energy and environmental science.
Just three days after the San Francisco Giants won the 2014 World Series, SLAC helped transform their home stadium, AT&T Park, into a science paradise.
SLAC will participate in Discovery Days at AT&T Park – the concluding highlight of the fourth annual Bay Area Science Festival.
Nobel Prize-winning scientists and other prominent researchers, including new directors for SLAC's X-ray laser and synchrotron, gave talks during an Oct. 7-10 event.
Since the success of its inaugural experiment five years ago, thousands of scientists have used SLAC's X-ray laser to probe previously unreachable extremes in fields ranging from biology to astrophysics.
Three scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have received international prizes for their achievements in free-electron laser science.
Researchers have shown X-ray laser pulses can capture natural motion in a polymer that behaves in unusual ways when heated to a middle ground between its melting point and solid state.
