The goal: Develop high-tech coatings that make the detector’s mirrors less “noisy”.
The new MFX station expands the X-ray laser’s capability and flexibility for biological studies, which are increasingly in demand at SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source.
Before Hitomi died, it sent back X-ray data that explain how turbulent motions may prevent cooling of hot gas.
A new device at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory allows researchers to explore the properties and dynamics of molecules with circularly polarized, or spiraling, light.
The results are an important step in designing these solid-state devices for computer memories that would operate much faster, last longer and use less energy than today’s flash memory.
Manipulating electron beams of X-ray lasers with regular laser light could potentially open up new scientific avenues.
Taken at SLAC, microscopic footage of exploding liquids will give researchers more control over experiments at X-ray lasers.
KIPAC researchers mourn the loss of the Hitomi spacecraft but are thrilled about the data it was still able to capture.
High-speed X-ray camera reveals ultrafast atomic motions at the root of organisms’ ability to turn light into biological function.
The lab’s signature particle highway prepares to enter another era of transformative science as the home of the LCLS-II X-ray laser.
