The Lindenberg Group's research is focused on taking atomic-scale movies of materials and devices in motion and in-situ. We take real-time snapshots of the motion of atoms and electrons and the bonds that hold them together and use this to try to understand materials functionality. We are interested in understanding the fundamental limits and microscopic processes that determine the performance of devices with applications to energy conversion, energy storage, and information processing. Our work is carried out in the Materials Science and Engineering Department and at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory as part of the PULSE Institute for Ultrafast Energy Science and the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Research (SIMES). We are also part of the Center for Non-Perturbative Studies of Functional Materials under Non-Equilibrium Conditions (NPNEQ) and the Energy Frontier Research Center Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits.
