Sisters in Science

Twin sisters, best friends support each other in science education, careers

Is your sister like a best friend? Is your best friend like a sister? Can she help you with your chem lab? “All of these things,” said Emma and Molly White and Ru-Shyan and Ru-Huey Yen, a pair of twin sisters and close friends who met in high school 16 years ago.

Sensitive Instrument Facility

Take a quick tour of Ames Laboratory's new Sensitive Instrument Facility. The state-of-the-art building is designed to minimize vibrations and magneto-electric interference that can affect the new, high-resolution electron microscopy equipment located there. Ames Lab and Iowa State University researchers will use the equipment to probe new materials at the atomic scale to learn important information about their atomic structure and how that relates to various properties.

Gazette carries story on CaloriCool

Cedar Rapids Gazette reporter Vanessa Miller wrote a story on Ames Laboratory's selection to be part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Materials Network initiative. Ames Laboratory will be focused on developing new materials for Caloric Cooling and Miller interviewed Ames Laboratory researcher Vitalij Pecharsky about the project.
