The Hubbard model, used to understand electron behavior in numerous quantum materials, now shows us its stripes, and superconductivity too, in simulations for cuprate superconductors.
A new study shows how soccer ball-shaped molecules burst more slowly than expected when blasted with an X-ray laser beam.
Two projects will look for ways to link individual quantum devices into networks for quantum computing and ultrasensitive detectors.
SLAC/Stanford scientists and their colleagues find a new way to efficiently convert CO2 into the building block for sustainable liquid fuels.
SUNCAT researchers discover a way to improve a key step in these conversions, and explore what it would take to turn the climate-changing gas into valuable products on an industrial scale.
SLAC and Stanford scientists have made the first nickel oxide material that shows clear signs of superconductivity – the ability to transmit electrical current with no loss.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
A new twist on cryo-EM imaging reveals what’s going on inside MOFs, highly porous nanoparticles with big potential for storing fuel, separating gases and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Experiments at SLAC’s X-ray laser reveal in atomic detail how two distinct liquid phases in these materials enable fast switching between glassy and crystalline states that represent 0s and 1s in memory devices.
A laser technique lets researchers see how potentially dangerous growths form in batteries.
