The Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory is a national resource designed to foster new research capabilities in nanoscale synthesis and processing. The centerâ€™s mission includes supporting basic research and advanced instrument-ation development for the creation of novel materials, using both top-down and bottom-up self-assembly, that provides new insights at the nanoscale level. The CNM houses expertise in several integrated scientific themes including electronic and magnetic materials & devices, nanobio interfaces, nanophotonics, and x-ray imaging, as well as enabling capabilities such as synthesis and self-assembly, nanofabrication, nanocharacterization, and theory and modeling. A hard x-ray nanoprobe, currently being built at the adjacent Advanced Photon Source, will provide fluorescence, diffraction, and transmission imaging at a spatial resolution of 30 nm or better. Users are invited to submit proposals requesting free access to this suite of affiliated laboratories as well as the CNM research programs.
