Center for Nanoscale Materials
The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory is a premier user facility, providing expertise, instruments, and infrastructure for interdisciplinary nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Academic, industrial, and international researchers can access the center through its user program for both nonproprietary and proprietary research. The center’s goal is to support basic research and the development of advanced instrumentation that will help generate new scientific insights, create innovative materials with unique functionality, and contribute significantly to energy-related research and development programs. High-impact staff and user science is accommodated within the primary cross-cutting theme of “Energy and Information Transduction at the Nanoscale.” Three critical pillars underpin this theme in the areas of: Materials discovery, Manipulation, and Visualization.
