Detectors long used to look at the cosmos are now part of X-ray experiments here on Earth.
The contaminant binds to organic matter in sediments, which increases persistence in groundwater.
Kelly Gaffney is the director of SSRL, SLAC's synchrotron that produces extremely bright x-rays as a resource for researchers to study our world at the atomic and molecular level of energy production, environmental remediation, nanotechnology, new materials and medicine.
Using an electric field, researchers drew magnetic designs in nonmagnetic material. These efforts could lead to new types of storage devices.
When molecules won't crystallize and technology confounds, who you gonna call?
A technique for probing the surface of particles revealed how toxins move from the soil to groundwater.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
During a recent shutdown, engineers installed new beamline technology and a 3-D virtual tour captured rare views of the synchrotron’s interior.
The event drew more than 400 participants, with workshops and presentations focusing on collaborations and new technology at SLAC’s light sources.
Beams of X-rays uncover surprising techniques in the creation of art on ancient Greek pottery.
Award honors accomplishments in condensed matter physics and electrochemistry at SSRL.
SLAC postdoctoral scholars recently participated in Tech Trek program to engage in a lively discussion with middle-schoolers.
The discovery is one of the first steps towards mapping hues of fossilized species.
Understanding how a material’s electrons interact with vibrations of its nuclear lattice could help design and control novel materials, from solar cells to high-temperature superconductors.
The goal of the DuraMat consortium is to make solar modules last longer, and thus drive down the cost of solar energy.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
The discovery could make water splitting, a key step in a number of clean energy technologies, cheaper and more efficient.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Merging two powerful 3-D X-ray techniques, researchers revealed new details of a process known as metal poisoning that clogs the pores of catalyst particles used in gasoline production, causing them to lose effectiveness.
