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.
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.
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.
