Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
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.
Researchers have discovered that an Ebola virus protein can transform into three distinct structures with different functions. This rather uncommon property provides new clues for the development of potential drugs for deadly hemorrhagic fever.
In a recent experiment at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, scientists "tickled" atoms to explore the flow of heat and energy across materials at ultrasmall scales.
Scientists at SLAC and Stanford show how high-temperature superconductivity emerges out of magnetism in an iron pnictide, a class of materials with great potential for making devices that conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency.
