|Ames Lab and Iowa State University staff had the opportunity to ask questions and provide input to members of the search committee charged with finding the next Ames Laboratory Director. The committee held two town hall meetings in June to share information about the search process, answer questions and gather comments.|
|The Ames Laboratory is hosting Violent Incident Response Training on Wednesday, July 10 at 9:00 a.m. in the Spedding Auditorium. This course has become popular across campus, and the Department of Public Safety is very busy providing training to many departments at the university.|
|Physicists at the Ames Laboratory have discovered surprising changes in electrical resistivity in iron-based superconductors. The findings, reported in Nature Communications, offer further evidence that magnetism and superconductivity are closely related in this class of novel superconductors.|
|A wealth of free training and professional development opportunities is being offered at the Ames Laboratory and through Iowa State University on a variety of topics. Read more to find out the specifics for each and how to register for them.|
|Ames Laboratory researchers Bruce Harmon and Yongbin Lee have found an accurate way to explain the magnetic properties of lanthanum, cobalt and oxygen (LaCoO3) that has mystified the scientific community for decades. While most materials tend to lose magnetism at higher temperatures, pure LaCoO3 is a non-magnetic semiconductor at low temperatures, but as the temperature is raised, it becomes magnetic.|
Materials scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Ames Laboratory have found an accurate way to explain the magnetic properties of a compound that has mystified the scientific community for decades.
