Understanding how a material’s electrons interact with vibrations of its nuclear lattice could help design and control novel materials, from solar cells to high-temperature superconductors.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
Now the startup, Lumeras LLC, has a viable commercial product, and scientists have a new tool for studying the behavior of complex materials.
A SLAC/Stanford study opens a new path to producing laser pulses that are just billionths of a billionth of a second long by inducing ‘high harmonic generation’ in a solid.
A Stanford/SLAC study of an exotic material known as a magnetic insulator found the walls between its magnetic regions are conductive, opening new approaches to memory storage.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
The former Stanford graduate student, who did extensive research at SLAC, is being honored as an exceptional role model for women in science.
SIMES principal investigators Zhi-Xun Shen, Shoucheng Zhang and Aharon Kapitulnik were elected to the National Academy of Sciences.
SLAC study shows the so-called ‘pseudogap’ hoards electrons that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100 percent efficiency.
A study at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory suggests for the first time how scientists might deliberately engineer superconductors that work at higher temperatures.
