Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
Experiments at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory solve a long-standing mystery in the role calcium atoms serve in a chemical reaction that releases oxygen into the air we breathe.
A postdoctoral researcher, whose work at SLAC's synchrotron was key in adapting an X-ray technique to probe chemical bonds in new ways, will receive an annual scientific award.
Ying Diao, a postdoctoral researcher who brought key innovations to a printing technique for flexible electronics and solar panels, will receive an award for her X-ray studies at SLAC.
SLAC will play a key role in a DOE-funded research consortium that seeks out new materials for next-generation solar panels, low-energy lighting and other uses.
Researchers at SLAC collaborate with small businesses to develop technology so it can benefit the world at large.
SLAC scientists have developed a new way to manufacture nanostructures, including precise focusing devices for X-rays.
Scientists at SLAC and in Denmark have developed an alternative fuel cell catalyst that’s five times more active than pure platinum and uses much less of the expensive metal.
Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have made the first structural observations of liquid water at temperatures down to minus 51 degrees Fahrenheit, within an elusive “no man’s land” where water’s strange properties are super-amplified.
SLAC scientists have found a new way to produce bright pulses of light from accelerated electrons that could shrink "light source" technology used around the world since the 1970s to examine details of atoms and chemical reactions
By finding surprising similarities in the way immune system defenders bind to disease-causing invaders, a new study may help scientists develop new treatments.
