Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
An X-ray laser experiment could lead to new drugs that lessen the side effects caused by powerful painkillers like morphine.
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.
