The Department of Chemistry seeks to provide students with a foundation in the fundamentals and application of chemical theories and processes of the lab. Thus prepared they me pursue careers as teachers, industry supervisors, or research chemists in a variety of domains (governmental, academic, etc).

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.

Abstract
A computational approach via implementation of the Principle Component Analysis (PCA) and Gaussian Mixture (GM) clustering methods from Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to identify domain structures of supercooled liquids is developed. Raw features data are collected from the coordination numbers of particles smoothed using its radial distribution function and are used as an order-parameter of disordered structures for GM clustering after dimensionality reduction from the PCA. To transfer the knowledge from features(structural) space to configurational space, another GM clustering is performed using the Cartesian coordinates as an order-parameter with the particles' identity from GM in the feature space. Both GM clustering are performed iteratively until convergence. Results show the appearance of aggregated clusters of nano-domains over sufficient long timescale both in structural and configurational spaces with heterogeneous dynamics. More importantly, consistent nano-domains tilling up the whole space regardless of the system size are observed and our approach can be applied to any disordered systems.
