Stanford PULSE Institute
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
A research collaboration designed a new assembly-line system that rapidly replaces exposed samples and allows the team to study reactions in real-time.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
SLAC experiments demonstrate a new way to access valence electrons, which are important in forming chemical bonds and determine many of a material’s properties.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
The event drew more than 400 participants, with workshops and presentations focusing on collaborations and new technology at SLAC’s light sources.
Understanding how a material’s electrons interact with vibrations of its nuclear lattice could help design and control novel materials, from solar cells to high-temperature superconductors.
Just as Schroedinger's Cat is both alive and dead, an atom or molecule can be in two different states at once. Now scientists have exploited this behavior to make X-ray movies of atomic motion with much more detail than ever before.
Method creates new opportunities for studies of extremely fast processes in biology, chemistry and materials science.
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.
