Join us virtually for the 2022 SSRL/LCLS Users' Meeting
Every year, thousands of scientists from universities, laboratories, and private companies around the world use our cutting-edge research facilities. Their discoveries benefit a wide range of fields, including materials and energy sciences, chemistry, biology, medicine, environmental science, engineering, astronomy, and physics.
This annual meeting is a unique opportunity to gather together the lightsource community in a single scientific event that includes numerous presentations in the plenary, poster, and parallel sessions. Participants can learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research and discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.
Come join us for the opportunity to join the following sessions for scientific exchange, discussions, and awards: plenary sessions, keynote talks, award presentations, scientific workshops, poster sessions, townhall discussions, and breakout sessions.
As one of 17 Department of Energy national labs, SLAC pushes the frontiers of human knowledge and drives discoveries that benefit humankind. We invent the tools that make those discoveries possible and share them with scientists all over the world.
SSRL provides extremely bright X-rays for a wide range of experiments that probe matter down to the scale of atoms and molecules. These studies target advances in energy production, human health, environmental cleanup, nanotechnology, novel materials and information technology, among other areas.
LCLS produces ultrafast pulses of X-ray laser light a billion times brighter than any previous X-ray source, allowing researchers to freeze the motions of atoms and molecules and string those images together to make stop-motion movies.
SLAC is operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
