Stanford PULSE Institute
SLAC’s ultrafast “electron camera” reveals unusual atomic motions that could be crucial for the efficiency of next-generation perovskite solar cells.
The research team was able to watch energy from light flow through atomic ripples in a molecule. Such insights may provide new ways to develop a class of materials that improve efficiency and reduce the size of applications like solar cells and memory storage devices.
A new X-ray laser technique allows scientists to home in on these single-electron triggers to better understand organic molecules that respond to light, including receptors in your eyes, plastic products and DNA building blocks that need to protect themselves from cancer-causing mutations.
Aaron Lindenberg, associate professor at Stanford and SLAC, talks about how he combines X-ray and electron techniques to understand and engineer novel materials.
PULSE scientist Amy Cordones-Hahn describes her work on chemical reactions that turn sunlight into useable energy.
Physicist Phil Bucksbaum gives a brief introduction to Femtosecond Week at SLAC.
SLAC celebrates five days of ultrafast science.
Join us for five days of ultrafast science from April 17 to 21.
A research collaboration designed a new assembly-line system that rapidly replaces exposed samples and allows the team to study reactions in real-time.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
