Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
Kelly Gaffney is the director of SSRL, SLAC's synchrotron that produces extremely bright x-rays as a resource for researchers to study our world at the atomic and molecular level of energy production, environmental remediation, nanotechnology, new materials and medicine.
Using an electric field, researchers drew magnetic designs in nonmagnetic material. These efforts could lead to new types of storage devices.
When molecules won't crystallize and technology confounds, who you gonna call?
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.
