In the Future, Combining Lasers Could Shrink Particle Accelerators from Kilometers to Meters WASHINGTON, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It took every inch of the Large Hadron Collider's 17-mile length to accelerate particles to energies high enough to discover the Higgs boson. Now, imagine an accelerator that could do the same thing in, say, the length of a football field. Or less. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20130627/DC39790LOGO That is the promise of...

Scientists Show X-ray Laser Can Solve Protein Structures From Scratch
2013-11-25 10:17:33

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory SLAC's linac coherent light source reaches key milestone in decoding biological structures that were out of reach A study shows for the first time that X-ray lasers can be used to generate a complete 3-D model of a protein without any prior knowledge of its structure. An international team of researchers working at the Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory produced from scratch an accurate model of lysozyme, a...

Accelerator On A Chip
2013-09-28 04:45:02

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A new technique used by researchers from the US Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University could dramatically reduce the size of particle accelerators. The scientists used a laser to accelerate electrons at 10 times that of conventional technology, doing so in a nanostructured glass chip smaller than a grain of rice. Their breakthrough could result in new medical and scientific devices that...

Speed Limit Set For Fastest Electrical Switch
2013-07-29 08:45:07

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have clocked the fastest-possible electrical switching in magnetite, a naturally magnetic mineral. Their results could drive innovations in the tiny transistors that control the flow of electricity across silicon chips, enabling faster, more powerful computing devices. Scientists using SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser found that it...

2013-05-24 07:22:10

[ Watch The Video Movie of 3D Image of a Gold Nanocrystal ] University College London The film, which was made using 3D imaging pioneered at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) at UCL, reveals important information about the composition of gold. The findings are published in the journal Science. Jesse Clark, from the LCN and lead author of the paper said: "Just as the sound quality of a musical instrument can provide great detail about its construction, so too can the...

Supercharged Atoms Force Rethink On Existing Theories
2012-11-12 12:21:38

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers has created ionized xenon atoms so positively charged that scientists involved in the study are now saying the existing theories need to be reexamined. Using the world´s most powerful laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford University, the physicists were able to kick out up to 36 electrons from a...
