Power Plants: Scientists Use X-ray Laser to Probe Engines of Photosynthesis

Wed, 2012/06/06 - 6:55am
by Glenn Roberts Jr.

The molecular power plants that carry out photosynthesis are at the root of a scientific quest to learn how they channel energy from sunlight to split water into oxygen and hydrogen. Understanding these fundamental processes could help scientists develop technologies that replicate nature’s handiwork to produce cheaper and more efficient fuels.

From the Director of SSRL: How SSRL Contributes to SLAC's Growth

Fri, 2012/05/18 - 6:55am
by Chi-Chang Kao

It is amazing to see how far SLAC has come in our transformation to a multi-purpose laboratory, and very exciting to be part of this change. At the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), we focus in particular on advancing SLAC’s objective of becoming the world’s premier photon-science laboratory.
