'Perfectly frustrated' metal provides possible path to superconductivity
The US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has discovered and described the existence of a unique disordered electron spin state in a metal that may provide a unique pathway to finding and studying frustrated magnets. Their unique properties are of interest in the development of quantum computing and high-temperature superconductivity.

Ames Laboratory, UConn discover superconductor with bounce
The US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has discovered extreme 'bounce,' or super-elastic shape-memory properties in a material that could be applied for use as an actuator in the harshest of conditions, such as outer space, and might be the first in a whole new class of shape memory materials.

Ames Lab receives $392,000 in funding to commercialize gas atomization design
The US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has received $392,000 in funding to commercialize a gas atomization nozzle design used to produce metal powders for manufacturing. In addition, the Laboratory will contribute in-kind matching funds of equal value for the project from private sector partner Ampal, Inc., a part of the United States Metal Powders group of companies.

Surrounded by potential: New science in converting biomass
To take full advantage of biomass, lignin needs to be processed into usable components along with the plant cellulose. Currently, that process requires an acid plus high heat, or pyrolysis -- treating with high heat in the absence of oxygen. Besides being energy-consuming processing methods, the results are less than optimal. Ames Laboratory scientists are working to develop a method to deconstruct lignin in a way that is economically feasible and into stable, readily useful components.
