Honors & Awards
The early-career award honors a promising leader in X-ray free-electron laser research.
In more than 185 experimental runs at SLAC’s synchrotron, he has pushed the envelope of both techniques and science.
Using SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron SSRL, Cao improves fundamental knowledge about how a new lithium-ion battery material works, which will help enable safer, longer-lasting devices.
Former Stanford and UC-Berkeley physicist is honored for foundational research that peers into unconventional phenomena within exotic materials.
Their work will deepen our understanding of matter in extreme conditions and fundamental particle physics.
Tais Gorkhover, Michael Kagan, Kazuhiro Terao and Joshua Turner will each receive $2.5 million for research that studies fundamental particles, nanoscale objects, quantum materials and machine learning.
Bienenstock is the winner of the 2018 Philip Hauge Abelson Prize, given by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Nearly 200 guests attended a symposium on fundamental physics to celebrate the former deputy director’s numerous scientific contributions, which continue to have a tremendous impact on our understanding of the subatomic world.
The prestigious award recognizes her seminal contributions to particle physics.
The award honors his contributions to research and education as founding president of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST).
