Remarkable cryo-EM images that reveal details down to the individual atom will yield new insights into why high-energy batteries fail.
SLAC’s ultrafast “electron camera” reveals unusual atomic motions that could be crucial for the efficiency of next-generation perovskite solar cells.
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.
Extraordinarily precise measurements -- within millionths of a billionth of a second and a billionth of a hair's breadth -- show this ‘electron-phonon coupling’ can be far stronger than predicted, and could potentially play a role in unconventional superconductivity.
The award recognizes the Stanford/SLAC professor’s pioneering work in the fields of energy and nanomaterials science.
Propagating “charge density wave” fluctuations are seen in superconducting copper oxides for the first time.
A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to a new study led by scientists at Stanford and SLAC.
TIMES applies the power of theory to the search for novel materials with remarkable properties that could revolutionize technology.
Researchers, including from SIMES, say extracting uranium from seawater could help nuclear power play a larger role in a carbon-free energy future.
