Ames Laboratory was originally formed by The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in 1947 and is currently funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Ames Laboratory is managed by Iowa State University located in Ames, Iowa. The primary purpose of Ames Laboratory is research on the synthesis and study of new raw materials. Necessary components include high-speed computing, natural resources and environmental clean up and restoration. Ames Laboratory conducts high level national security research. Ames Laboratory has a professional staff of scientists, engineers and support staff of about 420 and approximately 84 students.

New quantum criticality discovered in superconductivity

Using solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (ssNMR) techniques, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory discovered a new quantum criticality in a superconducting material, leading to a greater understanding ...

Pushing the extra cold frontiers of superconducting science

Measuring the properties of superconducting materials in magnetic fields at close to absolute zero temperatures is difficult, but necessary to understand their quantum properties. How cold? Lower than 0.05 Kelvin (-272°C).

Researchers see rare-earth-like magnetic properties in iron

(Phys.org) —Scientists at the Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have observed magnetic properties typically associated with those observed in rare-earth elements in iron. These properties are observed in a new iron ...

Scientists discover new family of quasicrystals

(Phys.org) —Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered a new family of rare-earth quasicrystals using an algorithm they developed to help pinpoint them. Quasicrystalline materials ...

Scientists develop indium-free organic light-emitting diodes

(Phys.org)—Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered new ways of using a well-known polymer in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), which could eliminate the need for an increasingly ...
