Previously unobserved scattering shows unexpected sensitivity to bound electrons, providing new insights into x-ray interactions with matter and opening the door to new probes of matter.
Researchers at SLAC and Stanford have created a nanostructured device, about half the size of a postage stamp, that harnesses more of the sun's spectrum of light to disinfect water much faster than with ultraviolet rays alone.
How do scientists know what percentages of the universe are made up of dark matter and dark energy?
Silicon chips can store data in billionths of a second, but phase-change memory could be 1,000 times faster, while using less energy and requiring less space.
An interdisciplinary team has developed a way to track how particles charge and discharge at the nanoscale, an advance that will lead to better batteries for all sorts of mobile applications.
Scientists are using plasma to create electronic sensors that will track the health of astronauts.
Now the startup, Lumeras LLC, has a viable commercial product, and scientists have a new tool for studying the behavior of complex materials.
What’s the difference between a synchrotron and a cyclotron, anyway?
Four Stanford students receive funding for work on novel accelerators and beams for SLAC's X-ray laser.
Science-interested teens spent a week at the lab learning more about STEM at the inaugural Greene Scholars Program Summer Science Institute at SLAC.
