Our best model of particle physics explains only about 5 percent of the universe.
Astrophysicists use a catalog of extended gamma-ray sources spotted by Fermi spacecraft to home in on mysterious properties of deep space.
A specialized measuring machine at SLAC is helping scientists build precise detectors for the ATLAS experiment.
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.
New technology could help future SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiment expand the search for light dark matter particles.
SLAC researchers play an important role in the data acquisition of the largest liquid-argon neutrino detector in the world, a prototype for the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
Today the ATLAS collaboration, which includes SLAC physicists, announced with the CMS collaboration the joint discovery of the Higgs boson transforming into bottom quarks as it decays.
A team of electrical designers develops specialized microchips for a broad range of scientific applications, including X-ray science and particle physics.
The event attracted 124 participants and explores the successes and challenges of the theory that describes subatomic particles and fundamental forces.
Researchers from SLAC and around the world increasingly use machine learning to handle Big Data produced in modern experiments and to study some of the most fundamental properties of the universe.
