Researchers use X-ray laser at SLAC to track light-triggered chemical reactions in a molecule that serves as a simple model for the conversion of solar energy into fuel.
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
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.
Scientists have used an X-ray laser at SLAC to get the first glimpse of the transition state where two atoms begin to form a weak bond on the way to becoming a molecule.
Researchers working at SLAC have captured the first X-ray portraits of living bacteria.
Research reveals that the bacterial immune system can better destroy viral attackers by saving genetic records of previously encountered viruses.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
In an important step toward handling the nation’s uranium milling legacy, researchers try to understand why contamination at remediated uranium processing sites continues to persist at dangerously high levels.
