The critical second: CMI’s second year doubles research milestones

Two years ago the Critical Materials Institute launched, bringing together the best scientific minds from national labs, universities, and industry that could move research on rare-earth metals quickly and on to marketable technologies, shortening development time by years if not decades. In that time, this U.S. Department of Energy Energy Innovation Hub has more than doubled its research accomplishments, bringing the total number of invention disclosures to 34. This week CMI holds its annual planning meeting at Idaho National Laboratory.

DMSE undergoes Triennial Review

All 15 field work proposals (fwps) in Ames Laboratory's Division of Materials Science and Engineering that receive funding through the Department of Energy's Basic Energy Sciences were reviewed July 28-30. The triennial program review provides Ames Laboratory a chance to showcase the research taking place within DMSE and provide justification to the DOE review team for providing ongoing support for those projects in the future.
