Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
Focused X-rays reveal how rocks under high pressure transform into different materials.
Two recently funded computing projects work toward developing cutting-edge scientific applications for future exascale supercomputers that can perform at least a billion billion computing operations per second.
What are parallel universes, and why do we think they might exist?
The event drew more than 400 participants, with workshops and presentations focusing on collaborations and new technology at SLAC’s light sources.
Beams of X-rays uncover surprising techniques in the creation of art on ancient Greek pottery.
The prize, shared with Sekazi Mtingwa and Anton Piwinski, honors theoretical work that helped sharpen the focus of beams at a wide variety of particle accelerators.
More than 40 interns spent 10 weeks this summer helping SLAC researchers advance the use of the Linac Coherent Light Source.
