The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) is a national basic
research laboratory, probing the structure of matter at the atomic
scale with x rays and at much smaller scales with electron and
positron beams. The laboratory is operated by Stanford University under a
contract from the United States
Department of Energy (DOE).
The combined staff is currently about 1300, 150 of whom are Ph.D. physicists. Typically 800 physicists from universities and laboratories around the world participate in the high energy physics program and 800 scientists from universities and industrial laboratories are active in the synchrotron radiation program.
