SLAC’s X-ray laser and Matter in Extreme Conditions instrument allow researchers to examine the exotic precipitation in real time as it materializes in the laboratory.
The Scripps researcher is honored for groundbreaking research at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource that accelerated the development of a vaccine for deadly Lassa fever.
Zeeshan Ahmed, Frederico Fiuza and Emilio Nanni will each receive about $2.5 million over five years to pursue cutting-edge research into cosmic inflation, plasma acceleration and using terahertz waves to accelerate particles.
Following the 2017 American Physical Society (APS) general election, Philip Bucksbaum will be vice president of APS in 2018 – an election that places him in the presidential line. He will become president-elect in 2019 and president in 2020.
Over the next five years they’ll work on getting significantly more information about how catalysts work and improving biological imaging methods.
A serendipitous discovery lets researchers spy on this self-assembly process for the first time with SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron. What they learn will help them fine-tune precision materials for electronics, catalysis and more.
A team including SIMES principal investigator Shoucheng Zhang says it has found the first firm evidence of such a Majorana fermion.
A flash of green laser followed by pulses of X-rays, and mere nanoseconds later an extraterrestrial form of ice has formed.
A makeover of the historic Beam Switch Yard prepares the lab for the installation of the LCLS X-ray laser upgrade.
The award recognizes the Stanford/SLAC professor’s pioneering work in the fields of energy and nanomaterials science.
