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.

 

Magnetism at Nanoscale

As the demand grows for ever smaller, smarter electronics, so does the demand for understanding materials’ behavior at ever smaller scales. Physicists at the Ames Laboratory are building a unique optical magnetometer to probe magnetism at the nano- and mesoscale.

 

Safety heroes eliminate possible fall hazard

Ames Laboratory chemist Pat Thiel is July’s Safety Hero for identifying a fall hazard near a main entrance to the Laboratory.

STOP: Early in the morning on July 13, Pat Thiel noticed that high humidity was causing condensation to develop on the floor just inside the east, ground-floor Spedding entrance.

THINK: Thiel realized that the condensation on the floor would create a very slippery surface and serious fall hazard in a highly-traveled area.

CHECK: Thiel called Plant Protection to alert them of the potential hazard. Plant Protection officers assessed the area and called in Custodial Services.
