Featured Stories

Consultant Ben Cook needed to see the nanoscale structure of a geopolymer, a green technology used to rehabilitate infrastructure. He contacted Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Technology Assistance Program and was paired with EMSL’s Bruce Arey and the advanced imaging capabilities at EMSL. Using scanning electron microscopy, Arey provided Cook with the images he needed to market geopolymer.
Titled “Integration 2015: Energy Materials and Processes for Advanced Batteries and Catalysis,” EMSL’s annual meeting will be Sept. 15-17. This year’s meeting focuses on advanced batteries and catalysis research at the molecular level and is open to users and non-users.
EMSL’s Special Science Call for Proposals ran from mid-April through September and generated 23 accepted studies. The call challenged prospective users to submit high-impact research projects that took advantage of EMSL’s technical resources including RadEMSL, the Quiet Wing microscopy and NanoSIMS capabilities, and HRMAC. The research associated with the call is progressing, and the projects will soon start delivering important scientific findings.
Researchers studying a broad spectrum of science, including biofuel production processes, climate effects on carbon cycling in the soil and carbon transformations in the atmosphere, will soon have access to EMSL’s new 21 Tesla Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance, or 21T FTICR, mass spectrometer. Proposed in 2008 by a group of scientists meeting at EMSL, the 21T FTICR will be fully operational in October. Scientists are eager to start getting molecular-level information for their research...
