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.

Experiment provides the best look yet at 'warm dense matter' at cores of giant planets

Experiment provides the best look yet at 'warm dense matter' at cores of giant planets

In an experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists precisely measured the temperature and structure of aluminum as it transitions into a superhot, highly compressed concoction known as 'warm dense matter.'

Scientists watch quantum dots 'breathe' in response to stress

Researchers at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory watched nanoscale semiconductor crystals expand and shrink in response to powerful pulses of laser light. This ultrafast 'breathing' provides new insight about how such tiny structures change shape as they start to melt -- information that can help guide researchers in tailoring their use for a range of applications.
