World's most powerful X-ray Laser

The Linac Coherent Light Source or LCLS, is the most powerful x-ray laser in the world.

This image of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser in Stanford University’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, captured by Nathan Taylor.



A group of amateur and pro photographers on a tour of the facilities, shoot photos of both the LCLS and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) for a contest, and the above image is one of the top three entries.

The three winning photos will compete in the Global Physics Photowalk against photos taken at other labs around the world.
