Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS)
The study at SLAC’s X-ray laser was a step toward understanding how DNA defends itself from breakage and potential mutations.
X-ray studies have produced surprising insights into the workings of a hormone receptor associated with blood pressure regulation that could be a target for new medicines related to cardiovascular conditions, neuropathic pain and tissue growth.
A new paper describes a way to fabricate glasses that can correct X-ray focusing problems at synchrotrons and X-ray lasers.
A research collaboration designed a new assembly-line system that rapidly replaces exposed samples and allows the team to study reactions in real-time.
X-rays show details of an insect virus’s crystalline cocoon with sub-nanometer resolution.
After 50 Years of Operation, One-third of the Lab’s Historic Linear Accelerator Is Extracted to Build Powerful New X-Ray Laser
When molecules won't crystallize and technology confounds, who you gonna call?
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
Scientists used SLAC's LCLS X-ray laser to make the first snapshots of a chemical interaction between two biomolecules. It changes the shape of millions of molecular switches almost instantaneously, like synchronized swimmers performing the same move.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
