The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
The technique can be used to study molecular phenomena and the forming and breaking of chemical bonds.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
Its electron beams will drive the generation of up to a million ultrabright X-ray flashes per second.
SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
Researchers produced an underwater sound with an intensity that eclipses that of a rocket launch while investigating what happens when they blast tiny jets of water with X-ray laser pulses.
Monika Schleier-Smith and Kent Irwin explain how their projects in quantum information science could help us better understand black holes and dark matter.
A better understanding of how these receptors work could enable scientists to design better therapeutics for sleep disorders, cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
A new method could be used to look at chemical reactions that other techniques can’t catch, for instance in catalysis, photovoltaics, peptide and combustion research.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
