Read an article on the history of The Development of Modern Particle Accelerators at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center written for a special commemorative edition of the Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of New South Wales, in memory of Prof. Jak C. Kelly, whom I hold in special regard as my PhD supervisor.
View a slide show presentation on how the discovery of the Higgs Boson at CERN is also the culmination of 50 years of reseach at SLAC.
Our favorite journal, NATURE, has published our aticle on
"Few-femtosecond time-resolved measurements of X-ray free-electron lasers"
and in case you're wondering, a femtosecond is just 1/1,000,000,000,000,000 of a second,
which is about the time it would take light to travel across the diameter of a tiny bacterium
