Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Method creates new opportunities for studies of extremely fast processes in biology, chemistry and materials science.
Merging two powerful 3-D X-ray techniques, researchers revealed new details of a process known as metal poisoning that clogs the pores of catalyst particles used in gasoline production, causing them to lose effectiveness.
The SLAC staff scientist is being honored for using theory and computation to help design new catalysts for generating and storing clean energy.
Researchers at SLAC and Stanford have created a nanostructured device, about half the size of a postage stamp, that harnesses more of the sun's spectrum of light to disinfect water much faster than with ultraviolet rays alone.
The White House announced $50 million in funding for ‘Battery500’, a five year effort, as part of a package of initiatives to accelerate adoption of electric vehicles in the U.S.
The new MFX station expands the X-ray laser’s capability and flexibility for biological studies, which are increasingly in demand at SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source.
High-speed X-ray camera reveals ultrafast atomic motions at the root of organisms’ ability to turn light into biological function.
Method’s unprecedented combination of atomic resolution and extraordinary speed opens up new opportunities for ultrafast science.
Their results suggest a more efficient way to store energy from solar and wind power by converting it into renewable fuels.
