Creating a molecular snapshot of the way proteins interact could help development of new cancer drugs.
Previously unobserved scattering shows unexpected sensitivity to bound electrons, providing new insights into x-ray interactions with matter and opening the door to new probes of matter.
The mirrors only differ by one atom in flatness, from end to end.
The White House announced $50 million in funding for ‘Battery500’, a five year effort, as part of a package of initiatives to accelerate adoption of electric vehicles in the U.S.
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.
