DOE NATIONAL LABORATORY:
SLAC NATIONAL
ACCELERATOR LABORATORY

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is one of the world 's leading research laboratories. Established in 1962, it is located at Stanford University in Menlo Park, CA. Our mission is to design, construct and operate state-of-the-art electron accelerators and related experimental facilities for use in high-energy physics and synchrotron radiation research.

SLAC research resumes at upgraded Large Hadron Collider

SLAC research resumes at upgraded Large Hadron Collider

Research with the Large Hadron Collider has officially resumed: The world's largest particle accelerator at CERN began on June 3 to collect data at a new record energy that could hold the key to new scientific discoveries. To keep up with the boost in performance, researchers at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have developed new technologies for ATLAS -- one of two experiments involved in the 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson.

Newly discovered property could help beat the heat problem in computer chips

X-ray studies at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have for the first time observed an exotic property that could warp the electronic structure of a material in a way that reduces heat buildup and improves performance in ever-smaller computer components.
