  • SLAC History | SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
    s Richard Taylor and Jerome I Friedman and Henry Kendall of MIT A dozen years after SLAC s founding researchers again struck physics gold with discoveries that were made possible by the addition of the Stanford Positron Electron Asymmetric Ring SPEAR In what became known as the November Revolution in particle physics experiments led by physicists Burton Richter at SLAC and Samuel Chao Chung Ting at Brookhaven National Laboratory announced their independent discoveries of the J psi particle which consists of a paired charm quark and anti charm quark in 1974 They received the Nobel Prize in Physics for this work in 1976 And in 1975 SLAC physicist Martin Perl announced the discovery of the tau lepton a heavy relative of the electron and the first of a new family of fundamental building blocks for which he shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1995 THE AGE OF COLLIDERS These discoveries and others that reshaped our understanding of matter were empowered by a series of colliders and detectors The Positron Electron Project PEP a collider ring with a diameter almost 10 times larger than SPEAR ran from 1980 90 The Stanford Linear Collider completed in 1987 allowed scientists to focus electron and positron beams from the original linear accelerator into micron sized spots for collisions The SLC hosted a decade of seminal experiments PEP was followed by the PEP II project which included a set of two storage rings and operated from 1998 2008 SYNCHROTRON RESEARCH AND AN X RAY LASER The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Project which opened to visiting researchers in 1974 used electromagnetic radiation generated by particles circling in SPEAR to explore samples at a molecular scale Its modernized descendant the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource now supports 30 experimental stations and about 2 000 visiting researchers a year SPEAR now known as SPEAR3 following a series of upgrades became dedicated to SSRL operations 20 years ago and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012 Roger D Kornberg professor of structural biology at Stanford received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2006 for work detailing how the genetic code in DNA is read and converted into a message that directs protein synthesis Key aspects of that research were carried out at SSRL Meanwhile sections of the linear accelerator that defined the lab and its mission in its formative years are still driving electron beams today as the high energy backbone of two cutting edge facilities the world s first hard X ray free electron laser the Linac Coherent Light Source LCLS which began operating in 2009 and FACET a test bed for next generation accelerator technologies A CHANGING MISSION SLAC s scientific mission has diversified from an original focus on particle physics and accelerator science to include cosmology materials and environmental sciences biology chemistry and alternative energy research Scientists still come by the thousands to use lab facilities for an even broader spectrum of experiments from archaeology to drug development industrial applications and even the analysis of dinosaur fossils and
