SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao said, "Together with complementary data from SLAC's X-ray laser Linac Coherent Light
Source, UED creates unprecedented opportunities for ultrafast science in a broad range of disciplines, from materials science to chemistry to the biosciences.
Xu and his team utilized the facility's Linac Coherent Light
Source, the world's first hard X-ray free electron laser, to generate the first three-dimensional map of arrestin while it was linked with a GPCR.
When a wave of light reaches the apex of a cone, it diffracts and leaves the surface as coherent light
[light that focuses like a laser]," Kazan said.
The classic double-slit experiment is simple to execute, requiring only a coherent light
source such as a laser pointer, a screen and a plate with two thin parallel slits.
Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory scientists using SLAC's Linac Coherent Light
Source (LCLS) X-ray laser found that it takes only 1 trillionth of a second to flip the on-off electrical switch in samples of magnetite, which is thousands of times faster than in transistors now in use.
Now researchers have found a way to do so using the Linac Coherent Light
Source free-electron laser, the world's most powerful X-ray laser.
It's also a coherent light
source, which means that the waves have a constant phase difference.
By combining light from the incoherent light source with the light from the coherent light
source, the overall power level of the coherent light
source in the combined light beam may be reduced while still perceiving a crisp, clear image," writes the inventor, Brett Bilbrey.
Comparative analysis of coherent light
action (laser) versus non-coherent light
(light-emitting diode) for tissue repair in diabetic rats.
The Linac Coherent Light
Source has been up and running for several months at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
lt;p>Another needed element of optical networking is the coherent light
produced by a laser that can rapidly turn on and off.
This method is based on diffraction and interference of coherent light
