Below is a bibliography of publications that cite the MPC (or more generically, the Ames Laboratory) as the source for the pure metals, alloys, or single crystals used in said publication. This list is non-exhaustive. If you have a paper in which such a citation is made please send us the citation.

Expectations for citation or acknowledgement:

MPC operations are funded by the US DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences. Acknowledgement of the use MPC facilities/services is expected in publications or research reports, as is the assistance of a specific MPC Technical Staff members if their work has made a significant contribution to your research.

Acknowledgement by bibliographic citation is preferred:

1 Materials Preparation Center, Ames Laboratory, US DOE Basic Energy Sciences, Ames, IA, USA, available from: < >.

2 Single crystals synthesized at the Materials Preparation Center. See 

These types of citations have been accepted by most Journal editors as appropriate citations. If you have further questions please contact us.

We would appreciate receiving a copy of publications that cite said use.
