Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
View photos of upgrades and new equipment at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) that will enable scientists to study photosynthesis, superconductors and other fields of research.
Scientists working at SLAC have for the first time directly observed a phenomenon that allows magnetic waves to travel a long distance with no resistance.
The SLAC Photowalk took a group of 17 photographers, both amateur and professional, behind the scenes to photograph SLAC's world-class science facilities, including the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL).
A team led by SLAC scientists combined powerful magnetic pulses with some of the brightest X-rays on the planet to discover a surprising 3-D effect that appears linked to a mysterious phenomenon known as high-temperature superconductivity.
A process developed by Stanford and SLAC scientists has potential for scaling up to manufacture clear, flexible electrodes for solar cells, displays and other electronics.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
A physicist at Argonne National Laboratory has been recognized for pioneering experiments at SLAC that helped establish a new way to study the structure of complex materials.
X-ray research on 80-million-year-old fossilized burrows, likely the work of tiny marine worms, is helping scientists understand how living organisms affected the chemistry of the sea floor.
The former Stanford graduate student, who did extensive research at SLAC, is being honored as an exceptional role model for women in science.
A tiny change in the length of a chemical bond makes a big difference in the activity of a molecule important in health, drug development and chemical synthesis
