About SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
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.
Stanford University operates SLAC for the DOE Office of Science. We run four joint research centers with Stanford that focus on cosmology and astrophysics, materials and energy science, catalysis, and ultrafast science. SLAC’s location in Silicon Valley and our connections with DOE, Stanford and other leading research centers speed our progress. We also look for ways to work with industry to solve problems and spread the benefits of research out into society.
