A ‘nonlinear’ phenomenon that seemingly turns materials transparent is seen for the first time in X-rays at SLAC’s Linac Coherent Light Source.
The study could help develop ways to safely transport radioactive actinium through the body to target tumor cells.
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.
