Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
A technique for probing the surface of particles revealed how toxins move from the soil to groundwater.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
During a recent shutdown, engineers installed new beamline technology and a 3-D virtual tour captured rare views of the synchrotron’s interior.
The event drew more than 400 participants, with workshops and presentations focusing on collaborations and new technology at SLAC’s light sources.
Beams of X-rays uncover surprising techniques in the creation of art on ancient Greek pottery.
Award honors accomplishments in condensed matter physics and electrochemistry at SSRL.
SLAC postdoctoral scholars recently participated in Tech Trek program to engage in a lively discussion with middle-schoolers.
The discovery is one of the first steps towards mapping hues of fossilized species.
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.
