Two new research projects support the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences in the study of exotic new materials that could enable future innovative electronic and photonic applications.
Recent experiments at SLAC's SSRL reveal that an organic semiconductor transports electrical charge more efficiently when combined with the wonder material graphene.
Scientists have assembled an exotic toolbox for experiments that tap into the brightest X-rays on the planet.
He’s known for exploring fundamental properties of novel materials on the nanoscale, and for developing new tools for the exploration.
Stanford and SLAC engineers observed electrons at work during catalytic reactions. Their findings challenge long-held theories about some catalysts, opening the door to new or improved renewable energy applications.
SLAC study shows the so-called ‘pseudogap’ hoards electrons that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100 percent efficiency.
An experiment at SLAC provided the first fleeting glimpse of the atomic structure of a material as it entered a state resembling room-temperature superconductivity – a long-sought phenomenon in which materials might conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency under everyday conditions.
More than a dozen energy-storage companies have streamlined access to research facilities and expertise at SLAC under a new cooperative R&D agreement with CalCharge.
A study at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory suggests for the first time how scientists might deliberately engineer superconductors that work at higher temperatures.
SLAC science and technology advisor Zhi-Xun Shen is among the recipients of the Moore Experimental Investigators in Quantum Materials grants, one of the top grants in quantum materials research. Another recipient, Columbia University Professor Tony Heinz, will join SLAC and Stanford in January 2015.
