Kathy Jean Schultz, a writer for The Daily Beast, posted a story on research by the Critical Materials Institute into using a Gluconobacter bacteria to extract metals from e-waste so they can be recycled by converting corn stover into sugars that feed and energize the metal-fetching bacteria. As the “gluco” p

Our research to improve refrigeration technology through caloric cooling, CaloriCool, is on the current cover of MRS Bulletin! Vitalij Pecharsky, CaloriCool director and Ames Laboratory scientist, is one of the guest editors of the issue and Ames Laboratory scientist Jun Cui is also a contributor in the issue.
A team of researchers from the University of Maryland (UMD) Department of Physics together with collaborators, including Ames Laboratory researchers, has seen exotic superconductivity that relies on highly unusual electron interactions. While predicted to occur in other non-material systems, this type of behavior has remained elusive. The team’s research, published in the April 6 issue of Science Advances, reveals effects that are profoundly different from anything that has been seen before with superconductivity.
Writer Sarah Saunders of 3DPrint.com, a news organization dedicated to the 3D printing and additive manufacturing industry, published a story April 4 on Ames Laboratory researchers sucessfully testing the CaloriSMART system to show refrigeration level cooling with a small sample of gadolinium. The benchtop system is designed to use small samples and can test magnetocaloric, electrocaloric and elastocaloric materials.
This article focused on the 3D printed manifold used to hold the sample materials and circulate fluid past the sample to harness the cooling power.
