    R&D Magazine carried an online story on Ames Laboratory's four-year, $3.2 million project to develop software that will bring the power of exascale computers to the computational study and design of catalytic materials.

    Ames Laboratory scientist Mark Gordon, also the Francis M. Craig Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Iowa State University, will lead the laboratory’s project. Old Dominion University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Virginia Tech, and EP Analytics are named as partner institutions in the effort.

    Ames Laboratory scientist Paul Canfield was part  of a team of researchers, led by Brookhaven National Laboratory, whose findings could lead to a universal explanation of how two radically different types of materials—an insulator and a metal—can perfectly carry electrical current at relatively high temperatures. The iron-selenide crystals used in the experiment were synthesized and characterized at Ames Laboratory.

    Trishelle Copeland-Johnson, a former SULI student at Ames Laboratory, is one of two Brookhaven National Laboratory graduate researchers featured recently in a Brookhaven web article. Copeland-Johnson is using synchrotron techniques at the National Synchrotron Light Source II and electron microscopy techniques at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials to characterize and test new materials for nuclear fuel cladding—the encasement for fuel rods in nuclear reactors.
