A laser technique lets researchers see how potentially dangerous growths form in batteries.
Both are professors at Stanford and SLAC, where Martinez is an investigator with the Stanford PULSE Institute.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
He helped lay the groundwork for SLAC’s LCLS X-ray laser and for the institute, which was founded to explore the science LCLS would enable.
SLAC researchers say their new method could make it easier to study interactions of ultrabright X-rays with matter.
X-ray laser snapshots give scientists a new tool for probing trillionths-of-a-second atomic motions in 2-D materials
The newly launched Quantum Fundamentals, ARchitecture and Machines initiative will build upon existing strengths in theoretical and experimental quantum science and engineering at Stanford and SLAC.
Watching electrons sprint between atomically thin layers of material will shed light on the fundamental workings of semiconductors, solar cells and other key technologies.
Ultrafast manipulation of material properties with light could stimulate the development of novel electronics, including quantum computers.
Revealed for the first time by a new X-ray laser technique, their surprisingly unruly response has profound implications for designing and controlling materials.
