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.
A SLAC/Stanford study opens a new path to producing laser pulses that are just billionths of a billionth of a second long by inducing ‘high harmonic generation’ in a solid.
Taken at SLAC, microscopic footage of exploding liquids will give researchers more control over experiments at X-ray lasers.
Laser light exposes the properties of materials used in batteries and electronics.
