Ames National Laboratory

Ames National Laboratory is a government-owned, contractor-operated national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

For more than 70 years, the Ames National Laboratory has successfully partnered with Iowa State University, and is unique among the 17 DOE laboratories in that it is physically located on the campus of a major research university. Many of the scientists and administrators at the Laboratory also hold faculty positions at the University and the Laboratory has access to both undergraduate and graduate student talent.

Our studies of the magnetic properties of RNi(2)B(2)C single crystals (R = Y, Gd-Tm, Lu) are reviewed. Of particular interest are the ordered magnetic structures when R is a magnetic rare earth atom, the interaction between magnetism and superconductivity, the influence of crystalline electric fields on the magnetic rare earth ions with resultant effects on these behaviors, and the magnetic character of the Ni sublattice.
