The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS)
The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory integrates nanoscale science with neutron science; synthesis science; and theory, modeling, and simulation. Operating as a national user facility, the CNMS supports a multidisciplinary environment for research to understand nanoscale materials and phenomena. CNMS research focuses on understanding, designing, and controlling the dynamics, spatial chemistry, and energetics underlying functionality and properties of nanoscale materials, systems, and architectures.
The CNMS user program provides access to equipment and technical expertise for nanoscale research that defines state of the art. The program is open to users from academia, industry, and research institutes worldwide.
