One of the most urgent challenges of our time is discovering how to generate the energy and products we need sustainably, without compromising the well-being of future generations by depleting limited resources or accelerating climate change. SLAC pursues this goal on many levels.
Studies of atomic-level processes that drain battery life and efficiency help improve battery performance.

Two new research projects support the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences in the study of exotic new materials that could enable future innovative electronic and photonic applications.
Jens Nørskov, director of the SUNCAT Center for Interface Science and Catalysis at Stanford and SLAC, has been named a member of the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional distinctions for engineers.
In this lecture, SLAC’s Ryan Coffee explains how researchers are beginning to use pattern recognition and machine learning to study chemical reactions at the level of atoms and molecules with the LCLS X-ray laser.
