Patricia Thiel, an Ames Laboratory scientist and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State University, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The Academy announced its 2019 class of new members today.
Georgiy Akopov, a postdoctoral research associate at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, has won a Young Investigator Award from the American Chemical Society Division of Inorganic Chemistry.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have developed a new microscopy approach for imaging gel nanocomposites in their natural state, which will reveal more useful information about their assembly and properties.
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. The advance moves 2D quantum materials a step closer to applications in electronics.
