VIEW ALLA Minute With Claire Lee, Particle PhysicistDepartment of Energy Recognizes Two Decades’ Worth of Argonne’s High-Quality Thermochemical Data'Neutron Camera' Method Captures Atomic-Scale Activity in a FlashAnswering Big Questions with Thin Oxide Films
Lee works on the communications and operations teams for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment and liaises with CERN and the team at Fermi.
These data are used to develop models of complex chemical environments and to improve models of atomic structures involved in chemical reactions.
The team developed a variable-shutter pair distribution function technique in which neutrons function like a camera but are a trillion times faster.
Thin oxide films help researchers in PNNL’s Energy Sciences Center develop model materials for semiconductors, sensors, and batteries.
