These stripes of electron spin and charge are exciting because of their possible link to a phenomenon that could transform society by making electrical transmission nearly 100 percent efficient.
In experiments with the lab’s ultrafast "electron camera," laser light hitting a material is almost completely converted into nuclear vibrations, which are key to switching a material’s properties on and off for future electronics and other applications.
Clothing made from a reversible fabric, developed in part by SIMES researchers, could warm or cool wearers and keep them comfortable, bringing down buildings’ energy costs.
Effort to improve the next generation of gravitational wave detectors includes atomic studies of new and better coatings for LIGO’s mirrors at SSRL.
Remarkable cryo-EM images that reveal details down to the individual atom will yield new insights into why high-energy batteries fail.
He is recognized for his numerous contributions to the advancement of accelerator physics, community service and education.
This novel method could shrink the equipment needed to make laser pulses billionths of a billionth of a second long for studying ultra-speedy electron movements in solids, chemical reactions and future electronics.
The early career award from SLAC’s X-ray laser recognizes Kjaer’s work in ultrafast X-ray science.
Kumar’s work, carried out in part at SSRL, explains how memristors work – a new class of electronic devices with applications in next-generation information storage and computing.
Tripling the energy and refining the shape of optical laser pulses at LCLS’s Matter in Extreme Conditions instrument allows researchers to recreate higher-pressure conditions and explore unsolved questions relevant to fusion energy, plasma physics and materials science.
