Scientific Honors & Awards
Johnson and his team assist scientists with synchrotron experiments and work to keep X-ray beamlines running at SLAC.
Burton Richter, Nobel laureate and director emeritus at SLAC, has been selected by President Obama to receive the National Medal of Science – the nation's highest honor for achievement in the field of science.
Three scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have received international prizes for their achievements in free-electron laser science.
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.
The Department of Energy has awarded two Stanford scientists funding through the agency’s Early Career Research Program.
Agostino Marinelli, a postdoctoral researcher in the Accelerator Directorate, has been named the 2014 recipient of the Frank Sacherer Prize from the European Physical Society.
One common stereotype of a theoretical physicist is the solitary scientist, scribbling away in his or her office and only emerging when there’s a "Eureka!" in the offing. SLAC accelerator physicist Gennady Stupakov would beg to differ.
Stanford graduate student Spencer Gessner has received a Siemann fellowship to help him continue his research into cutting-edge accelerator physics at SLAC's Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests.
FACET postdoc Sébastien Corde has been recognized not once, not twice, not three times, but four times for his research into developing small, economical sources of X-rays using laser-plasma interactions.
Sean Brennan's decades of X-ray expertise keep pulling him back to SLAC even though he formally retired in 2008. During a recent visit to the lab, he accepted the Farrel W. Lytle Award for his extensive contributions to SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL).
