Joshua Turner is a staff scientist at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences, a joint institute between Stanford University and SLAC, as well as at the Linac Coherent Light Source, the world’s first x-ray free electron laser (XFEL) based at SLAC.
He received both a BS in Physics and a BA in Mathematics from UC Santa Barbara, a MA in Physics from Boston University specializing in instrumentation constructed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) for magnetic spectroscopy, and a PhD in Physics from the University of Oregon. During his doctoral studies, Joshua was an Advanced Light Source Doctoral Fellow at LBNL where he built a coherent scattering endstation to study fluctuations in quantum materials. He also spent time as a visiting researcher at the Brookhaven National Laboratory where his work focused on x-ray diffraction, inelastic scattering, and nanofabrication in strongly correlated materials. He then moved to Stony Brook University, NY to work as a postdoctoral fellow, lecturer, and then adjunct assistant professor, specializing in coherent imaging to investigate biological cells and nanoporous glass.
Josh is a leader in ultra-fast x-ray studies, which he has applied to an array of scientific fields, from chemistry and materials physics to the study of plasmas found in large planets and hot astrophysical objects. His most recent focus is on an innovative technology which utilizes new modes of the XFEL and can be used to examine subtle fluctuations in materials using short, coherent x-ray pulses. This will advance the frontier in quantum materials through the observation of novel types of order found in exotic systems such as topological magnets, unconventional superconductors, and strongly spin-orbit coupled Mott insulators. He is the recipient of the Department of Energy’s Early Career Award, a prestigious award granted to further the individual research programs of outstanding scientists with demonstrated successful research activities and potential for solving important problems to the U. S. government. He has published over 100 scientific articles with one-third of them in high-profile journals.
Dr. Ram Dhuley is a Staff Engineer at Fermilab. He specializes in mechanical design, analysis, construction, and testing of low temperature systems that support High Energy Physics experiments and Particle Accelerators. He graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Florida State University and is an undergraduate alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. He has more than 20 publications on topics related to low temperature engineering.
Dr. Charlie Cooper has been at Fermilab for more 15 years and received his doctorate at the University of Cincinnati in 2003, focusing on the synthesis, characterization, and use of novel materials and systems for chemical separations. He also received an MBA from the University of Chicago in 2015. He has 10 years of experience in the manufacturing of superconducting radio frequency accelerators for high energy physics experiments. The past 5 years he has spent engaged in application and technology development of electron beam accelerator technology for commercial application. He has expertise in use of electron beams for environmental remediation including a workshop hosted on the topic. He has published papers in the Journal of Membrane Science, IEEE transactions on applied superconductivity, Superconductor Science and Technology, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, Physical Review Accelerators and Beams, Journal of the Electrochemical Society and a patent on accelerator technology. He served on the board of directors of the Chicago Council of Science and Technology and is currently on the executive committee of the accelerator applications division of the American Nuclear Society.
Dr. Washington currently serves on multiple committees both at SRNL and in the Aiken community. These include the Conduct of R&D safety council, Diversity Board of Directors for SRNS, and the former Board of Directors Chairman and current member for Habitat for Humanity. He is an also an Adjunct Professor at USC Aiken in the chemistry department.
