A team led by SLAC scientists combined powerful magnetic pulses with some of the brightest X-rays on the planet to discover a surprising 3-D effect that appears linked to a mysterious phenomenon known as high-temperature superconductivity.
A process developed by Stanford and SLAC scientists has potential for scaling up to manufacture clear, flexible electrodes for solar cells, displays and other electronics.
A Stanford/SLAC study of an exotic material known as a magnetic insulator found the walls between its magnetic regions are conductive, opening new approaches to memory storage.
An all-day symposium recognized the professor emeritus for his many contributions to the scientific community, from pioneering synchrotron radiation research at SSRL to making science policies on Capitol Hill.
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.
