PULSE Stanford
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory


The LCLS-PULSE seminar is a joint seminar between LCLS and PULSE that provides a platform to facilitate the scientific communication of photon science in SLAC. We invite speakers from SLAC, Stanford campus and world wide to cover diverse disciplines across ultrafast science from accelerator physics, ultrafast light source to atomic and molecular dynamics, materials science, nanoscale and biomolecular imaging.

The predecessor of the current LCLS-PULSE seminar was PULSE seminar born in Spring of 2007. It was initially designed for rotation talks within PULSE groups, coordinated by Haidan Wen. With the development of PULSE Institute (a quick fact, PULSE Institute was called PULSE Center then), the seminar also served as an important channel to deliver forefront ultrafast science from visiting scholars. In 2009, the LCLS-PULSE seminar was created with LCLS for a cross-Institute platform to facilitate the scientific communication of photon science in SLAC. Yiping Feng has served as the coordinator from LCLS since then. This website was also written to advertise and archive talks. After Haidan Wen's leave in Summer of 2010, Brian McFarland and Joshua Wittenberg jointly coordinate the seminar with Yiping Feng.
