Scientists for the first time tracked ultrafast structural changes, captured in quadrillionths-of-a-second steps, as ring-shaped gas molecules burst open and unraveled.
An experiment at SLAC’s X-ray laser provides new insight into the ultrafast motions of a muscle protein in a basic biochemical reaction.
A SLAC experiment has provided the first detailed look at the creation of an exotic superhot, compressed concoction known as "warm dense matter" – the stuff believed to be at the core of giant gas planets like Jupiter.
SLAC study of tiny nanocrystals provides new insight on the design and function of nanomaterials
Scientists have used SLAC’s X-ray laser to produce detailed images of tiny cellular structures that play a major role in Earth’s life-sustaining carbon cycle.
A study at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory suggests for the first time how scientists might deliberately engineer superconductors that work at higher temperatures.
Scientists at Genentech and SLAC have watched a key human protein change from a form that protects cells to one that kills them, providing valuable new insights to cancer research.
Research led by SLAC and Stanford scientists has uncovered a new, unpredicted behavior in a copper oxide material that conducts electricity without any loss at relatively high temperatures.
Lee comes from MIT, where his team recently discovered a fundamentally new type of magnetic behavior in a mineral called herbertsmithite.
Scientists have for the first time mapped the atomic structure of a protein within a living cell. The technique, which peered into cells with an X-ray laser, could allow scientists to explore some components of living cells as never before.
