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.
A 200-terawatt laser at SLAC will synchronize with X-ray laser pulses to precisely measure more extreme temperatures and pressures in exotic forms of matter.
A biomedical breakthrough reveals never-before-seen details of the human body’s cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses.
Anne Sakdinawat, a SLAC scientist, has been selected to receive a grant to advance her work in producing and using new types of X-ray imaging tools.
A commercial X-ray source with roots in SLAC research enables multi-mode computer tomography scans that outperform routine scans in hospitals. The technique could potentially find widespread use in medicine and other fields.
Scientists at SLAC and Utrecht University have identified how catalysts degrade when used to refine crude oil.
Developed at SLAC’s LCLS, it could also yield new information from hard-to-study samples in materials science, chemistry and other fields.
For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing some of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus.
Researchers working at SLAC have captured the first X-ray portraits of living bacteria.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
