What Is PULSE?
The PULSE mission is to advance the frontiers of ultrafast science.
PULSE is a Stanford independent laboratory providing world leadership in ultrafast and short wavelength science and technology.
One of the primary tools of PULSE is the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the world’s first hard X-ray free electron laser. The LCLS is about a billion times brighter than any X-ray source ever produced in the laboratory.» more
PULSE is led by Stanford faculty and research scientists with a strong commitment to teaching and training the next generation of science leaders.
We have recently moved into newly renovated laboratories on the SLAC Campus.
PULSE founded the Ultrafast X-ray Summer School, an annual five day residential program. The 2011 school is co-sponsored by CFEL in Hamburg, Germany
