Call for Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) User Proposals
The call for CNM user proposals opens Feb. 2. Proposals are due March 2. There is NO FEE to submit or to use facility resources.

The CNM provides industry and academic researchers with access to a broad range of capabilities for design, synthesis, characterization, and theory and modeling in order to significantly advance the understanding of nanoscale phenomena and develop functional nanoscale systems.
 
Facility access is provided at NO COST for research that is in the public domain and intended for publication.

IME SCIENTISTS DIG DEEP IN SOIL FOR DATA TO IMPROVE AGRIGULTURE, POLLUTION
Soil is an incredibly complex ecosystem feeding into crop health and the Earth’s nutrient cycles in ways not fully understood. Recent advances in wireless data communications and the growing revolution of portable, cheap sensors have made it possible for scientists, including CNM Director Supratik Guha and UChicago Research Professor Monisha Ghosh, to start a pilot program to take real-time soil measurements.
