Computer simulations by SLAC physicists show how light pulses can create channels that conduct electricity with no resistance in some atomically thin semiconductors.
Scientists at Stanford and SLAC use diamondoids – the smallest possible bits of diamond – to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires.
When molecules won't crystallize and technology confounds, who you gonna call?
A technique for probing the surface of particles revealed how toxins move from the soil to groundwater.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Squeezing a platinum catalyst a fraction of a nanometer nearly doubles its catalytic activity, a finding that could lead to better fuel cells and other clean energy technologies.
Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
Focused X-rays reveal how rocks under high pressure transform into different materials.
