Fundamental Interactions

The theoretical Chemical Physics program at Ames Laboratory supports integrated efforts in electronic structure theory and non-equilibrium statistical mechanical & multiscale modeling. The primary focus is on the development and application of methods that enable the study of surface phenomena, heterogeneous catalysis, cluster science and nucleation theory, and mechanisms in organometallic chemistry.

June 1990 is all about OSHA

The June 1990 issue of Insider had a cover story on the OSHA Inspection that resulted in an overall rating of Excellent. Other features from the issue included a story on Lewis Oswood who grew orchids as a hobby, awards for James Vary, Kerry Whisnant, Jim Fritz, and Glennn Schrader, and artwork by Ed Gurganus.

 

Deputy Secretary holds roundtable discussion on STEM

Deputy Secretary of Energy Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall held a roundtable Ames Laboratory, Iowa State University and local officials to discuss the importance of STEM education to the Department of Energy, to listen to short descriptions of research projects from the Laboratory’s education program students and others and to have an open dialogue with city and national representatives on STEM-related workforce development and opportunities for strengthening exiting relationships between the Ames Laboratory, the city of Ames and other groups.

 

New CMI process recycles magnets from factory floor

A new recycling method developed by scientists at the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub led by the Ames Laboratory, recovers valuable rare-earth magnetic material from manufacturing waste and creates useful magnets out of it. Efficient waste-recovery methods for rare-earth metals are one way to reduce demand for these limited mined resources.
