Using SLAC's X-ray laser, researchers created "movies" of atomic-level explosions that can give scientists new information about how X-rays interact with molecules.
A team led by researchers from Argonne used the high-intensity, quick-burst X-rays provided by the Linac Coherent Light Source at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to look at how the atoms in a molecule change when the molecule is bombarded with X-rays.

Although neutrinos are extremely abundant, it took 26 years for scientists to confirm their existence. In the 60 years since the neutrino’s discovery, we’ve slowly learned about this intriguing particle.
Project Poltergeist led to the discovery of the ghostly particle. Sixty years later, scientists are confronted with more neutrino mysteries than ever before.

Check out this video about LCLS-II, the upgrade to SLAC's X-ray laser that will will add a second X-ray laser beam that’s 10,000 times brighter, on average, than the first one and fires 8,000 times faster -- up to a million pulses per second. The upgrade will greatly increase the power and capacity for experiments that sharpen our view of how nature works on the atomic level and on ultrafast timescales.

The Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences has developed new technologies to tackle two of the world’s biggest energy challenges – clean fuel for transportation and grid-scale energy storage.
By Mark Shwartz. A Stanford University research lab has developed new technologies to tackle two of the world's biggest energy challenges – clean fuel for transportation and grid-scale energy storage. The researchers described their findings in two studies published this month in the journals ...

A darkened and emptied section of the Klystron Gallery awaits a superconducting upgrade to the 50-year-old linear accelerator. The superconducting equipment will power an upgrade to SLAC's X-ray laser that will add a second X-ray laser beam that’s 10,000 times brighter, on average, than the first one and fires 8,000 times faster, up to a million pulses per second.

The results are an important step in designing solid-state devices for future computer memories that operate much faster, last longer and use less energy than today’s flash memory.

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.
