Particle Astrophysics & Cosmology (PAC)
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will track billions of objects for 10 years, creating unprecedented opportunities for studies of cosmic mysteries.
Scientists, including researchers at SLAC, have only just begun to study the remarkably detailed map they created of a portion of the sky.
SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.
These projects, selected during the process to plan the future of US particle physics, are all set to come online within the next 10 years.
Astrophysicists use a catalog of extended gamma-ray sources spotted by Fermi spacecraft to home in on mysterious properties of deep space.
New technology could help future SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiment expand the search for light dark matter particles.
A team of electrical designers develops specialized microchips for a broad range of scientific applications, including X-ray science and particle physics.
She’ll direct the future of astrophysics research at SLAC and Stanford for the next five years.
By capturing the most energetic light in the sky, the spacecraft continues to teach us about the mysteries of the universe.
The SuperCDMS SNOLAB project, a multi-institutional effort led by SLAC, is expanding the hunt for dark matter to particles with properties not accessible to any other experiment.
