He is recognized for his numerous contributions to the advancement of accelerator physics, community service and education.
About 400 people attended the annual conference and workshops for scientists who conduct experiments at SLAC’s light sources.
Lithium ion batteries may remain tops for sheer performance, but when cost-per-storage is factored in, a design based on sodium ions offers promise; research was conducted in part at SSRL.
The X-ray scientist is honored for 20 years of beamline and instrumentation design, operation and scientific support at SLAC’s synchrotron.
The early career award from SLAC’s X-ray laser recognizes Kjaer’s work in ultrafast X-ray science.
The X-ray studies performed at SLAC will help the oil industry improve guidelines for corrosion from sulfur in crude oil.
More than 100 students worked on projects ranging from website development to imaging techniques for X-ray studies, learning new ways to apply their talents.
With SLAC’s X-ray laser, a research team captured ultrafast changes in fluorescent proteins between “dark” and “light” states. The insights allowed the scientists to design improved markers for biological imaging.
Kumar’s work, carried out in part at SSRL, explains how memristors work – a new class of electronic devices with applications in next-generation information storage and computing.
A new “two-bucket” method of delivering pairs of X-ray pulses gives a 1,000-fold improvement in seeing magnetic fluctuations that could lead to improved data storage materials.
