Linear accelerator lease renewed

Stanford University and the Department of Energy will continue as partners for at least another 33 years, now that both have signed a new lease for the SLAC national accelerator laboratory in Menlo Park. The original contract was approved nearly five decades ago.

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu visited SLAC on Aug. 16 to dedicate the research facility's new laser, also known as the Linac Coherent Light Source, and said to be the world's most powerful X-ray.
