Tringides receives the 2017 Theodore E. Madey Award from the American Vacuum Society

February 9, 2017

Michael C. Tringides received the 2017 Theodore E. Madey Award from the American Vacuum Society for his excellence in internationally collaborative research.

Tringides, a scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Ames Laboratory and a professor of physics and astronomy at Iowa State University explores how atoms move on surfaces. The process is essential in making nanotechnologies, such as computer transistors of much smaller size.
According to Tringides, a computer’s speed depends on how far the electrons have to go across transistors. Current computer transistors may have hundreds of atoms along a linear dimension. Tringides hopes his work will be used to reduce that to only two or three.

CMP group researchers win W.M. Keck Foundation grant to develop nanoscope

February 9, 2017

Jigang Wang, Zhe Fei, Paul C. Canfield and Costas Soukoulis are working to build a powerful instrument capable of exploring and tuning materials in ways that could help solve the world’s energy, information processing and data storage needs.

The researchers call their proposed instrument an extreme quantum terahertz nanoscope.

The W.M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles – one of the country’s largest philanthropic organizations – recently awarded a three-year, $1.3 million grant to support construction, commissioning and initial use of the nanoscope. The project will be known as the W.M. Keck Initiative in Ultrafast Quantum Microscopy of Emergent Orders.
