In an important step toward handling the nation’s uranium milling legacy, researchers try to understand why contamination at remediated uranium processing sites continues to persist at dangerously high levels.
Stanford and SLAC engineers observed electrons at work during catalytic reactions. Their findings challenge long-held theories about some catalysts, opening the door to new or improved renewable energy applications.
His election recognizes a long history of accomplishment that began more than two decades ago at the SLAC Linear Collider.
Plans to build the world’s largest digital camera at SLAC have reached a major milestone, with funding approval for the 3,200-megapixel camera. The camera will be the centerpiece of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), which will provide unprecedented details of the universe and help address some of its biggest mysteries.
SLAC study shows the so-called ‘pseudogap’ hoards electrons that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100 percent efficiency.
Experiments have helped explain some of the imbalance between matter and antimatter in the universe, but not all of it. Now a SLAC theorist and his colleagues have laid out a possible method for determining if the Higgs boson is involved.
A scientist at Germany’s DESY lab who participated in pioneering studies at SLAC's LCLS has been awarded a scientific prize by a research foundation.
Understanding details of a flu antibody offers new insight for future structure-based drug discovery and novel avenues for designing vaccines.
Researchers captured the highest-resolution snapshots ever taken with an X-ray laser that show changes in a protein’s structure over time.
An experiment at SLAC provided the first fleeting glimpse of the atomic structure of a material as it entered a state resembling room-temperature superconductivity – a long-sought phenomenon in which materials might conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency under everyday conditions.
