Linking the different forces into a single theory isn’t easy, since each behaves a different way.
Scientists want to connect the fundamental forces of nature in one Grand Unified Theory.

A new center has been established at Stanford to help researchers probe the structure of biological molecules, many of whom conduct their research at SLAC.
The Macromolecular Structure Knowledge Center can help researchers who lack equipment for testing hundreds of different crystallization conditions or expertise in working with challenging molecules.

Creating the batteries or electronics of the future requires understanding materials that are just a few atoms thick and that change their fundamental physical properties in fractions of a second.
Laser light exposes the properties of materials used in batteries and electronics.

Researchers use SLAC's X-ray laser to better understand how tremendously powerful cosmic particle accelerators – near supermassive black holes, for instance – propel streams of ionized gas, called plasma, hundreds of thousands of light-years into space.

Researchers used SLAC's x-ray laser to look at a peculiar transformation that might occur inside giant gas planets like Jupiter, whose interior is largely made of liquid hydrogen: At high pressure and temperature, this material is believed to switch from its “normal,” electrically insulating state into a metallic, conducting one.

While the supply of accelerator physicists in the United States has grown modestly over the last decade, it hasn’t been able to catch up with demand fueled by industry interest in medical particle accelerators and growing collaborations at the national labs. 
Accelerator scientists are in demand at labs and beyond.

Story
Tagline
SLAC researchers and facilities explore the frontier questions of science.
Introduction
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is one of the 10 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science national laboratories and is operated by Stanford University on behalf of the DOE. Since its opening in 1962, SLAC has been helping create the future. We've built the world’s longest particle accelerator, discovered fundamental building blocks of matter and lead countless experiments to test and explore the physical nature of the universe.
