Honors & Awards
Claudio Pellegrini, a distinguished professor emeritus of physics at UCLA and adjunct professor of photon science at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his “distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.”
Sila Kiliccote, Jodi Verleger and Lydia Young demonstrate what it means to live SLAC’s values.
The prize, shared with Sekazi Mtingwa and Anton Piwinski, honors theoretical work that helped sharpen the focus of beams at a wide variety of particle accelerators.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Four Stanford students receive funding for work on novel accelerators and beams for SLAC's X-ray laser.
Roger Blandford, professor of physics, has been awarded the 2016 Crafoord prizes in astronomy from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
He is being honored for the development of theories that help researchers better understand nature’s fundamental particles and forces.
The 2010 experiment marked a significant step forward in understanding extreme states of matter at the hearts of stars, planets and nuclear fusion reactions.
The medal, which recognizes distinguished physicists for outstanding statesmanship in science, honors Quinn for her work in science education.
