SLAC/Stanford scientists and their colleagues find a new way to efficiently convert CO2 into the building block for sustainable liquid fuels.
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.
The coating significantly extends the battery's life and reduces the problems that cause batteries to burst into flames.
The studies could lead to a new understanding of how high-temperature superconductors operate.
The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
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.
What they learned could help manufacturers design more reliable and longer-lasting batteries for smartphones and cars.
SLAC’s ‘electron camera’ films rapidly melting tungsten and reveals atomic-level material behavior that could impact the design of future reactors.
