Scientific Honors & Awards
The prize, shared with Sekazi Mtingwa and Anton Piwinski, honors theoretical work that helped sharpen the focus of beams at a wide variety of particle accelerators.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Four Stanford students receive funding for work on novel accelerators and beams for SLAC's X-ray laser.
Roger Blandford, professor of physics, has been awarded the 2016 Crafoord prizes in astronomy from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
He is being honored for the development of theories that help researchers better understand nature’s fundamental particles and forces.
The 2010 experiment marked a significant step forward in understanding extreme states of matter at the hearts of stars, planets and nuclear fusion reactions.
The medal, which recognizes distinguished physicists for outstanding statesmanship in science, honors Quinn for her work in science education.
The American Physical Society has recognized both researchers for their leading role in SLAC’s BABAR experiment, which confirmed theorists’ description of how nature treats matter and antimatter differently.
The former Stanford graduate student, who did extensive research at SLAC, is being honored as an exceptional role model for women in science.
