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.

First direct evidence that a phase of matter competes with high-temperature superconductivity

First direct evidence that a phase of matter competes with high-temperature superconductivity

Scientists have found the first direct evidence that a mysterious phase of matter known as the 'pseudogap' competes with high-temperature superconductivity, robbing it of electrons that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100 percent efficiency.

Is the Higgs Boson a piece of the matter-antimatter puzzle?

Several experiments, including the BaBar experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have helped explain some -- but not all -- of the imbalance between matter and antimatter in the universe. Now a SLAC theorist and his colleagues have laid out a possible method for determining if the Higgs boson is involved.
