Harold Hwang, the deputy director of SLAC's Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES), has been awarded the 2014 EPS Condensed Matter Division Europhysics Prize for his role in the discovery and investigation of electron liquids at oxide interfaces.
Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have made the first structural observations of liquid water at temperatures down to minus 51 degrees Fahrenheit, within an elusive “no man’s land” where water’s strange properties are super-amplified.
A sense of adventure and intellectual rigor led PULSE chemistry professor Kelly Gaffney to a successful career in science.
Even in their infancy, X-ray lasers such as SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source are notching a list of important discoveries, and a special issue of a scientific journal highlights their unique contributions to biological sciences.
A sensor design first envisioned in 1995 by physicists and engineers at SLAC plays a starring role in a major ATLAS detector upgrade at the Large Hadron Collider.
SLAC scientists have found a new way to produce bright pulses of light from accelerated electrons that could shrink "light source" technology used around the world since the 1970s to examine details of atoms and chemical reactions
If it exists, a type of decay called neutrinoless double-beta decay will show that neutrinos are their own antiparticles and can help scientists determine their masses.
Differences between two types of black-hole-powered galaxies may reflect a change in how the galaxies extract energy from their central black holes.
Understanding the origins of our solar system, the future of our planet or humanity requires complex calculations run on high-power computers.
Researchers from Oxford, SIMES and Berkeley Lab say cadmium arsenide could yield practical devices with the same extraordinary electronic properties as 2-D graphene.
