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.
An international team of researchers fabricated an atomically thin material and measured its exotic and durable properties that make it a promising candidate for a budding branch of electronics known as “spintronics.”
A new X-ray laser technique allows scientists to home in on these single-electron triggers to better understand organic molecules that respond to light, including receptors in your eyes, plastic products and DNA building blocks that need to protect themselves from cancer-causing mutations.
With SLAC’s X-ray laser and synchrotron, scientists measured exactly how much energy goes into keeping this crucial bond from triggering a cell's death spiral.
The method dramatically reduces the amount of virus material required and allows scientists to get results several times faster.
