SLAC and Stanford scientists discovered that a single layer of tiny diamonds increases an electron gun’s emission 13,000 fold. Potential applications include electron microscopes and semiconductor manufacturing.
The Precourt Institute for Energy and the TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy at Stanford have awarded 12 faculty seed grants totaling $2.1 million for groundbreaking research on clean energy, including three grants to SLAC-Stanford collaborations.
Scientists working at SLAC have for the first time directly observed a phenomenon that allows magnetic waves to travel a long distance with no resistance.
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.
