A physicist at Argonne National Laboratory has been recognized for pioneering experiments at SLAC that helped establish a new way to study the structure of complex materials.
The former Stanford graduate student, who did extensive research at SLAC, is being honored as an exceptional role model for women in science.
SIMES research, which confounds two decades of assumptions on lithium-ion battery design, could lead to better batteries with more power and greater capacity.
A researcher who performed a variety of X-ray experiments at SLAC’s synchrotron will receive an annual scientific award during a SLAC conference next month.
Using a new technology for ultrafast science, researchers have for the first time observed extremely rapid atomic motions in a three-atom-thick layer of a promising material that could be used in next-generation solar cells, electronics and catalysts.
Researchers at SLAC have for the first time seen a spin current – an inherent magnetic property common to all electrons – as it travels across materials.
A SLAC/Stanford manufacturing technique could help make inexpensive polymer-based solar cells an attractive alternative to silicon-crystal wafers.
A new technology at SLAC uses high-energy electrons to unravel motions faster than a tenth of a trillionth of a second in materials, opening up new research opportunities in ultrafast science.
SIMES scientists have developed a cheap and efficient way to extract clean-burning hydrogen fuel from water 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Researchers discovered that adding two chemicals to the electrolyte of a lithium metal battery prevents the formation of dendrites – “fingers” of lithium that pierce the barrier between the battery’s halves, causing it to short out, overheat and sometimes burst into flame.
