|Ames Lab's computer systems underwent a System Test and Review in June 2010 and Information Systems is working to closeout a security categorization of all desktop systems and servers. Most systems have been migrated to a "Moderate" enclave based on the data accessed, printed or stored and IS staff are completing documentation to reflect these changes.|
|The research is the same but Ames Laboratory has a new way of describing what that work is and how it's accomplished. A variety of new centers and initiatives have been developed to describe the collaborative and multi-faceted research taking place.|
|Ames Lab Public Affairs manager and education program coordinator Steve Karsjen has been invited to join the National Science Bowl Planning Committee. He will be leading the event's media/public awareness activities.|
Technology Review writer Katherine Bourzac highlights a $100 million Materials Genome Initiative aimed at encouraging more efficient use of the computational modeling tools that researchers use to predict the properties of new materials.
AMES, Iowa â€“Mark S. Gordon, a senior scientist at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory, has been named the recipient of the 2009 American Chemical Society Award for Computers in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research. The international award recognizes outstanding achievement in the use of computers in research, development or education in the chemical and biological sciences.
AMES, Iowa â€“ Karl A. Gschneidner, Jr., senior metallurgist at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory, has been awarded the prestigious Acta Materialia Gold Medal, considered by many scientists and engineers to be the top award worldwide in the field of materials research. Gschneidner received the award during the 2008 annual meeting of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society in New Orleans, La. on March 11, 2008, where Ames Lab senior metallurgist Iver Anderson was honored also with a TMS Distinguished Scientist/Engineer award.
AMES, Iowa - The U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory is making science exciting this summer for eight science teachers from middle schools across the Midwest. These dedicated and motivated teachers are participating in their second year of the Laboratory's Academies Creating Teacher Scientists, or ACTS, program. ACTS began on June 23 and runs through July 25, 2008. This year the teachers had the added bonus of visiting both the DOE's Argonne and Fermi national laboratories, where they toured facilities and met with scientists and teachers participating in the ACTS program in Illinois.
AMES, Iowa â€“ Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory have come up with a potentially perfect way to sort and distribute the massive amounts of data that travel daily over optical fibers to people throughout the world. The new technology, a three-dimensional photonic crystal add-drop filter, promises greatly enhanced transmission of multiple wavelength channels (wavelengths of light) traveling along the same optical fiber. The innovative filter is a significant achievement in the effort to develop all-optical transport networks that would eliminate electrical components from optical transmission links and guarantee virtually flawless data reception to end users of the Internet and other fiber-based telecommunications systems.
AMES, Iowa â€“ Mufit Akinc, an associate scientist at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory, has been elected a Fellow of ASM International, a society for materials scientists and engineers.
