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.
Successful physics collaborations rely on cooperation between people from many different disciplines.
Research with SLAC’s X-ray laser simulates what happens when a meteor hits Earth’s crust. The results suggest that scientists studying impact sites have been overestimating the sizes of the meteors that made them.
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.
A new way to observe this deformation as it happens can help study a wide range of phenomena, from meteor impacts to high-performance ceramics used in armor, as well as how to protect spacecraft from high-speed dust impacts.
Analysis of data from the BaBar experiment rules out theorized particle’s explanation for muon mystery.
The cryogenic plant responsible for keeping LCLS-II’s superconducting linear accelerator at just a few degrees above absolute zero recently received its first warm helium compressors.
In October, SLAC installed the first of LCLS-II’s cryogenic “feed caps” and “end caps.”
Remarkable cryo-EM images that reveal details down to the individual atom will yield new insights into why high-energy batteries fail.
The astrophysicist is recognized for her leadership, mentorship and innovative work in understanding how galaxies form.
