In a first, researchers measure extremely small and fast changes that occur in plasma when it’s zapped with a laser. Their technique will have applications in astrophysics, medicine and fusion energy.
This summer, five graduate students from the University of Puerto Rico had the opportunity to use SLAC’s world-class facilities to keep their studies on track.
SLAC and Stanford researchers are developing a device that combines electrical brain stimulation with EEG recording, opening potential new paths for treating neurological disorders.
The National Institutes of Health center on the SLAC campus will make this revolutionary technology available to scientists nationwide and teach them how to use it to study 3D structures of biological machines and molecules.
The new facility provides revolutionary tools for exploring tiny biological machines, from viral particles to the interior of the cell.
With SLAC’s X-ray laser, scientists captured a virus changing shape and rearranging its genome to invade a cell.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
Creating a molecular snapshot of the way proteins interact could help development of new cancer drugs.
New insights into how bacteria interact with host cells could help fight off harmful microbes.
A tiny change in the length of a chemical bond makes a big difference in the activity of a molecule important in health, drug development and chemical synthesis
