“It’s a very interesting contrast,” says Thomas Shutt of SLAC. “Going into the mine, it’s all mining carts, rust and rock, and then you get down to the Davis Campus, and it’s a really state-of-the-art facility.” - from Symmetry.
The underground home of the LUX dark matter experiment has a rich scientific history.

Scientists for the first time have precisely measured a protein’s natural “knee-jerk” reaction to the breaking of a chemical bond – a quaking motion that propagated through the protein at the speed of sound.

Our next public lecture – Pictures of Other Worlds: Exploring the Atmospheres of Exoplanets – is tomorrow evening. Enjoy it from the comfort of home via the live stream.
In less than two decades, scientists have discovered more than a thousand planets orbiting other stars. Now we know that our solar system is not alone -- but we still do not know if it is rare or unique. Most of these new planets were not seen directly, but instead were discovered through their influence on their parent star. Directly imaging an exoplanet is very difficult; it requires blocking out the bright light from the star to reveal the fai...

“The completion of the clean room is a big milestone for the lab,” said LSST Director Steven Kahn. “It’s the first major piece of LSST infrastructure here at SLAC.”

A new study predicts that researchers could use spiraling pulses of laser light to change the nature of graphene, turning it from a metal into an insulator and giving it other peculiar properties that might be used to encode information.

SLAC, a key member of the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter collaboration, is setting up a test stand for the detector prototype and a facility to purify liquid xenon, which will be the detector’s “eye” for dark matter.

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.
