Ames Laboratory scientists granted time on world's fastest computer

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Ames Laboratory have been awarded 45 million processor-hours of computer time on Titan, recently named the world’s premier open science supercomputer. They will use the enormous computational capability of Titan to identify promising compositions of new magnetic materials that do not contain rare earth elements, which are increasingly in short supply. Stronger non-rare earth permanent magnets are critical to replace the current rare earth magnets for energy efficient electric drive motors (used in hybrid and electric vehicles) and more powerful electrical generators (used in wind turbines).


Holiday Auction items still needed

Image With the Ames Laboratory's 11th Annual Employees Holiday Auction less than two weeks away, we are still in need of donated items to be auctioned. See what new has been added and stop by the Public Affairs office to place bids. This year the auction proceeds will benefit the Story County Raising Readers program and Bethesda Food Pantry.
