Congratulations to PULSE PI Taisia Gorkhover on her DOE Early Career Award!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Department of Energy (DOE) has selected 84 scientists from across the nation – including 30 from DOE’s national laboratories and 54 from U.S. universities – to receive significant funding for research as part of the DOE Office of Science’s Early Career Research Program. The effort, now in its ninth year, is designed to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work.


Stanford students tour SLAC

Stanford students recently visited SSRL and LCLS as part of a Principles of X-ray Scattering class led by PULSE PIs David Reis and Jerry Hastings.

Tick, Tock on the 'Attoclock:' Tracking X-Ray Laser Pulses at Record Speeds

When it comes to making molecular movies, producing the world's fastest X-ray pulses is only half the battle. A new technique reveals details about the timing and energy of pulses that are less than a millionth of a billionth of a second long, which can be used to probe nature's processes at this amazingly fast attosecond timescale.
