In a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory and Northeastern University, scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal nanocrystals or “islands” sandwiched between or below two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene. READ MORE

To better understand how plant roots interact with soil at a molecular level, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have developed a model instrument that will capture that information in real time, in the field-- a capability that doesn’t currently exist. READ MORE

Stilwell Middle School students (l-r) Rose Penar, Jackson Keith, Ayden Murenzi, Owen Kouba and Henry Golay celebrate after winning the 2019 Ames Laboratory Regional Middle School Science Bowl. READ MORE

Ames Laboratory scientists have discovered a means of controlling the surface conductivity of a three-dimensional (3D) topological insulator, a type of material that has potential applications in spintronic devices and quantum computing.  READ MORE
