|Seasonal flu shots will be available to Ames Lab and ISU employees beginning Oct. 10. The flu shot clinic will once again be located in 205 TASF and flu shots will be administered 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays from Oct. 10 through Oct. 28.|
|Ames Lab has received $1.5 million from the Office of Basic Energy Sciences to proceed with the design phase for a proposed $9.3 million facility to house sensitive characterization equipment. The new facility will house delicate equipment, like the transmission electron microscope pictured, providing protection from unwanted vibration and electromagnetic interference.|
|Visitors coming to Ames Laboratory from campus via Gilman Hall will be able to find the Lab a little easier. In fact, the colorful new "signs" at the entrances into TASF are hard to miss.|
|Ames Lab senior physicist Michael Tringides' team has been studying the interaction of materials that are promising for use in nanoscale electronics: graphene and different types of metals. The team has discovered the rare-earth metals dysprosium and gadolinium react strongly with graphene, while lead does not.|
Transistors and information storage devices are getting smaller and smaller. But, to go as small as the nanoscale, scientists must understand how just a few atoms of metals behave when deposited on a surface.
Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory are studying the interaction of materials that are promising for use in nanoscale electronics: graphene and different types of metals. The team has discovered the rare-earth metals dysprosium and gadolinium react strongly with graphene, while lead does not.
|Ames Laboratory employees reaching a service milestone can now choose from a variety of items to mark their service anniversaries. The new program was implemented for individual earning their service awards in 2010.|
|A group of nearly 30 Ames Laboratory employees were recognized for their years of service completed in 2010 at an awards luncheon held Sept. 22 in the Campanile Room of the ISU Memorial Union. Employees were honored for 10 years of service up to 50 years with Paul Ness joining the elite group who have celebrated a half-century with the Lab.|
