Lee Yang, Berkeley Lab Director’s Exceptional Achievement Award (2015)

 A collaboration of experts from Berkeley Lab, Brookhaven National Laboratory, the University of San Diego, and Uppsala University broke the world record, achieving 3nm resolution with X-ray microscopy. The team built a new microscope based on ptychography, a novel mode imaging technique that uses high-performance scanning transmission X-ray microscopy. This capability is an important tool for energy sciences, as demonstrated in initial work on lithium iron phosphate batteries. Software Engineer, Lee Yang, was a member of the Berkeley Lab team that included Rich Celestre, David Kilcoyne, Stefano Marchesini, David Shapiro, Tolek Tyliszczak, and Tony Warwick. The team won the Berkeley Lab Director’s Exceptional Achievement Award in the Scientific category for their scientific advancements.
