The studies could lead to a new understanding of how high-temperature superconductors operate.
The SLAC scientists will each receive $2.5 million for their research on fusion energy and advanced radiofrequency technology.
The technique can be used to study molecular phenomena and the forming and breaking of chemical bonds.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
Experiments at SLAC’s X-ray laser reveal in atomic detail how two distinct liquid phases in these materials enable fast switching between glassy and crystalline states that represent 0s and 1s in memory devices.
A new method could be used to look at chemical reactions that other techniques can’t catch, for instance in catalysis, photovoltaics, peptide and combustion research.
First direct look at how atoms move when a ring-shaped molecule breaks apart could boost our understanding of fundamental processes of life.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
He helped lay the groundwork for SLAC’s LCLS X-ray laser and for the institute, which was founded to explore the science LCLS would enable.
X-ray laser snapshots give scientists a new tool for probing trillionths-of-a-second atomic motions in 2-D materials
