Merging two powerful 3-D X-ray techniques, researchers revealed new details of a process known as metal poisoning that clogs the pores of catalyst particles used in gasoline production, causing them to lose effectiveness.
Contributions to LIGO have come from many Stanford teams, including SLAC, Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics and the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences.
A new study with the LCLS X-ray laser could change the way researchers take atomic-level snapshots of important biological machineries, potentially affecting research in drug development, clean energy production and many more areas.
This surprising finding has potentially broad implications, from X-ray imaging of single particles to fusion research.
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 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.
