Physicist Phil Bucksbaum gives a brief introduction to Femtosecond Week at SLAC.
SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
A new paper describes a way to fabricate glasses that can correct X-ray focusing problems at synchrotrons and X-ray lasers.
A research collaboration designed a new assembly-line system that rapidly replaces exposed samples and allows the team to study reactions in real-time.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
SLAC’s X-ray laser provides clues to engineering a new protein to kill mosquitos that carry dengue and Zika.
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.
Just as Schroedinger's Cat is both alive and dead, an atom or molecule can be in two different states at once. Now scientists have exploited this behavior to make X-ray movies of atomic motion with much more detail than ever before.
Method creates new opportunities for studies of extremely fast processes in biology, chemistry and materials science.
