The contaminant binds to organic matter in sediments, which increases persistence in groundwater.
Kelly Gaffney is the director of SSRL, SLAC's synchrotron that produces extremely bright x-rays as a resource for researchers to study our world at the atomic and molecular level of energy production, environmental remediation, nanotechnology, new materials and medicine.
Using an electric field, researchers drew magnetic designs in nonmagnetic material. These efforts could lead to new types of storage devices.
Scientists at Stanford and SLAC use diamondoids – the smallest possible bits of diamond – to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires.
When molecules won't crystallize and technology confounds, who you gonna call?
A technique for probing the surface of particles revealed how toxins move from the soil to groundwater.
After 30 years in industry, he is leading a new focus at the lab’s SSRL X-ray light source and looking for ways to build on research strengths at SLAC and Stanford.
Paleontologist Phil Manning describes the “Imaging Life on Earth” project at TEDxCharleston.
New X-ray methods have captured the highest resolution room-temperature images of photosystem II.
The team determined the 3-D structure of a biomolecule by tagging it with selenium atoms and taking hundreds of thousands of images.
