The award honors his work on a world-class experimental station at SLAC's Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource.
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.
A ‘nonlinear’ phenomenon that seemingly turns materials transparent is seen for the first time in X-rays at SLAC’s Linac Coherent Light Source.
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.
Previously unobserved scattering shows unexpected sensitivity to bound electrons, providing new insights into x-ray interactions with matter and opening the door to new probes of matter.
The mirrors only differ by one atom in flatness, from end to end.
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.
The goal: Develop high-tech coatings that make the detector’s mirrors less “noisy”.
