Physicist Phil Bucksbaum gives a brief introduction to Femtosecond Week at SLAC.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
Z-X Shen, SLAC science and technology advisor, professor of photon science and of physics, and a senior fellow of the Precourt Institute for Energy, is among 11 Stanford faculty members elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
A research collaboration designed a new assembly-line system that rapidly replaces exposed samples and allows the team to study reactions in real-time.
After 50 Years of Operation, One-third of the Lab’s Historic Linear Accelerator Is Extracted to Build Powerful New X-Ray Laser
Computer simulations by SLAC physicists show how light pulses can create channels that conduct electricity with no resistance in some atomically thin semiconductors.
Scientists at Stanford and SLAC use diamondoids – the smallest possible bits of diamond – to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires.
Squeezing a platinum catalyst a fraction of a nanometer nearly doubles its catalytic activity, a finding that could lead to better fuel cells and other clean energy technologies.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
The event drew more than 400 participants, with workshops and presentations focusing on collaborations and new technology at SLAC’s light sources.
