SLAC, Stanford scientists work with startup to get tabletop laser through the 'Valley of Death'

SLAC, Stanford scientists work with startup to get tabletop laser through the 'Valley of Death'

Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have collaborated with a local startup company to turn a novel tabletop laser -- one that produces extreme ultraviolet light at unprecedented energies and pulse rates for studies of complex materials -- into a commercial product.

X-ray studies could help make LIGO gravitational wave detector 10 times more sensitive

Scientists from Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are using powerful X-rays to study high-performance mirror coatings that could help make the LIGO gravitational wave observatory 10 times more sensitive to cosmic events that ripple space-time.
