Experts have identified the source of and the way to tune the strength and ductility of high-entropy alloys
A newly discovered metal-free carbon-based catalyst that has the potential to be much less expensive and more efficient for many industries
Research thus far hypothesized that the materials' extraordinary electronic, magnetic, and optical properties are related to the Rashba effect
Researchers at Ames Laboratory are experimenting with chemical reactions that decompose lignin models at low temperatures and pressures
The inability to control or tune graphene’s unique properties has been an obstacle to its application
The group will explore the fundamental ways plants produce and store energy, how to potentially optimize those metabolic processes, and then compile the vast amounts of information collected
Producing cleaner, cheaper, smarter, stronger, lighter, and more corrosion-resistant materials for industry is vital
A new recycling method developed by scientists at the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy Innovation Hub led by the Ames Laboratory, recovers valuable rare-earth magnetic material from manufacturing waste and creates useful magnets out of it. Efficient waste-recovery methods for rare-earth metals are one way to reduce demand for these limited mined resources.
