Pat Thiel, senior chemist at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory, has been named the winner of the 2010 David Adler Lectureship Award. The award, presented by the American Physical Society, recognizes Thiel as an outstanding contributor to the field of material physics, who is noted for the quality of her research, review articles and lecturing.
Pat Thiel, senior chemist at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory, has been named the winner of the 2010 Arthur W. Adamson Award for Distinguished Service in the Advancement of Surface Chemistry.
U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary Daniel Poneman today announced the winners of the 2009 Department of Energy Solar Competition on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Team Germany, the student team from Darmstadt, Germany, won top honors by designing, building, and operating the most attractive and efficient solar-powered home. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign took second place followed by Team California in third place.
The U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory received high marks in Science and Technology Project/Program Management in 2008 as part of the DOE Office of Scienceâ€™s laboratory appraisal process.
The U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s (DOE) Ames Laboratory will receive approximately $1.7 million as part of President Obamaâ€™s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The funds are part of $1.2 billion announced by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu today from funding allocated under the Recovery Act to DOEâ€™s Office of Science.
Two researchers at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory and Iowa State University have won a 2009 R&D 100 Award for software that will help engineers design the next generation of highly efficient and low-emission power plants.
Spring semester marked the launch of a new education program at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory called Pre-Service Teachers, or PST. The program provides Iowa State University pre-service science teachers a chance to work in a research lab and gain first-hand experience that will equip them with a better understanding of the scientific research process.
Materials produced at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory were launched into space on May 14 with the European Space Agencyâ€™s Planck Mission. Ames Laboratoryâ€™s Materials Preparation Center synthesized over 20 kilograms of a lanthanum-nickel-tin alloy for use in a metallic hydride sorption cryocooler systemâ€”built by NASAâ€™s Jet Propulsion Laboratoryâ€”that will cool instruments during the space mission.
Ames Laboratory researchers have discovered nanoscale self-assembled structures that are spontaneously and quickly created by unusually mobile atoms.
