PULSE Institute for Ultrafast Energy Science
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, scientists got a textbook-worthy result that may change the way matter is probed at X-ray free-electron lasers.
SLAC study of tiny nanocrystals provides new insight on the design and function of nanomaterials
He’s known for exploring fundamental properties of novel materials on the nanoscale, and for developing new tools for the exploration.
In this lecture, SLAC’s Ryan Coffee explains how researchers are beginning to use pattern recognition and machine learning to study chemical reactions at the level of atoms and molecules with the LCLS X-ray laser.
The world's first large-scale, interactive molecular physics experience is the brainchild of David Glowacki, a visiting researcher at the PULSE Institute.
An experiment revealed a well-organized 3-D grid of quantum "tornadoes" inside microscopic droplets of supercooled liquid helium – the first time this formation has been seen at such a tiny scale.
DNA’s molecular building blocks absorb ultraviolet light so strongly that sunlight should deactivate them – yet it doesn’t. A new SLAC study reveals details of a “relaxation response” that protects these molecules and the genetic information they encode.
Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have made the first structural observations of liquid water at temperatures down to minus 51 degrees Fahrenheit, within an elusive “no man’s land” where water’s strange properties are super-amplified.
A sense of adventure and intellectual rigor led PULSE chemistry professor Kelly Gaffney to a successful career in science.
The Department of Energy has awarded two Stanford scientists funding through the agency’s Early Career Research Program.
