SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
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.
TIMES applies the power of theory to the search for novel materials with remarkable properties that could revolutionize technology.
Two astrophysicists and a theoretical physicist discuss how the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will probe the nature of dark matter and dark energy by taking an unprecedentedly enormous scan of the sky.
X-ray studies have produced surprising insights into the workings of a hormone receptor associated with blood pressure regulation that could be a target for new medicines related to cardiovascular conditions, neuropathic pain and tissue growth.
Stanford and SLAC researchers are leading a multi-year effort to produce nitrogen-based fertilizers in a sustainable way, by inventing a solar-powered chemistry technology that can make it right on the farm and apply it directly to crops, drip-irrigation style.
Scientists at SLAC and Stanford have identified active carbon catalysts and developed an electrochemical cell designed to purify water in small villages.
Sila Kiliccote, Jodi Verleger and Lydia Young demonstrate what it means to live SLAC’s values.
As it evolves, SLAC's linear accelerator illustrates some important technologies from the history of accelerator science.
Paving the way for flexible electronics, engineers have developed a plastic electrode that stretches like rubber but carries electricity like wires.
