Congratulations to the following members of the ALS community on your achievements!
Ane Etxebarria wins Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship
|Etxebarria was a doctoral fellow in residence at the ALS, where she analyzed solid/gas interfaces with advanced spectroscopic techniques. She is now a postdoctoral researcher at the Fritz Haber Institute in Germany, where her work will help design better catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) to make future hydrogen production more efficient.

DOE’s Energy Storage Grand Challenge Celebrates Women’s History Month
During Women’s History Month, DOE is recognizing these ALS users for their work on energy storage. Their contributions are impacting the daily lives of Americans across the country. Read more>>
|Marca Doeff, Senior Scientist and Deputy Division Director (Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division, Berkeley Lab): Her research focuses on materials for batteries, particularly next-generation lithium-ion and “beyond lithium-ion” devices. She was the first to demonstrate a sodium-ion battery with a soft carbon anode in the early 90s.|
|Johanna Nelson Weker, Staff Scientist (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory) and ALS Users’ Executive Committee Chair: She established the use of spectroscopic microscopy to take movies of the chemical changes during battery operation. These movies let scientists connect the local chemical changes with shape changes like particle swelling or cracking.|
