Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL)
The goal of the DuraMat consortium is to make solar modules last longer, and thus drive down the cost of solar energy.
The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
The discovery could make water splitting, a key step in a number of clean energy technologies, cheaper and more efficient.
Liu acknowledged for wide-ranging work in energy materials, catalysis, carbon sequestration, material in extreme conditions and scientific big data mining.
Merging two powerful 3-D X-ray techniques, researchers revealed new details of a process known as metal poisoning that clogs the pores of catalyst particles used in gasoline production, causing them to lose effectiveness.
The study could help develop ways to safely transport radioactive actinium through the body to target tumor cells.
Creating a molecular snapshot of the way proteins interact could help development of new cancer drugs.
The White House announced $50 million in funding for ‘Battery500’, a five year effort, as part of a package of initiatives to accelerate adoption of electric vehicles in the U.S.
Scientists are using plasma to create electronic sensors that will track the health of astronauts.
The goal: Develop high-tech coatings that make the detector’s mirrors less “noisy”.
