Call for Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) User Proposals
The call for CNM user proposals is open. Proposals are due October 26. There is no fee to submit and facility access is provided at NO COST for research that is in the public domain and intended for publication.

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.

ANDY WEIR, AUTHOR OF "THE  MARTIAN," VISITS ARGONNE AND CNM
During his Argonne visit, Weir toured CNM, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the Advanced Photon Source and Argonne’s Electrochemical Discovery Laboratory, where scientists seek to uncover next generation batteries.

Weir’s visit culminated in a panel during which he joined CNM Nanoscientist Ani Sumant, ALCF Director of Science Katherine Riley and Argonne Materials Scientist Jason Croy. The group discussed the power of storytelling and the links between science fiction and scientific research.

John Carlisle at the CNM​ 10th Anniversary Symposium
ADVANCED DIAMOND TECHNOLOGIES RESEARCH AT CNM PAYS OFF

“I spent many years in advanced diamond technologies, working with the CNM to develop diamond-based products for applications ranging from biomedical devices to X-ray zone plates, which is work that continues to this day. Without the CNM, none of this work would have been possible. ADT [advanced diamond technologies], an Argonne spinoff had a $100 million impact on Will County in Illinois and is a direct example of the CNM paying off.”

CNM WELCOMES MATHEW CHERUKARA
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Mathew Cherukara to CNM as an assistant scientist with the Electron and X-Ray Microscopy group.

After receiving his doctorate in Materials Engineering at Purdue University, Mathew worked as an assistant physicist at Argonne's Advanced Photon Source. Mathew focuses on machine learning, generative A.I., deep neural networks, 4-D operando and ultra-fast pump-probe X-ray diffraction imaging and Bragg Coherent Diffraction Imaging.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Welcome, Cristian Cortes
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Cristian Cortes, a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Gray, to CNM.

Cristian received his doctorate in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University. His research at Argonne focuses primarily on  the theoretical modeling of quantum optical phenomena using optomechanical devices and nanostructured materials.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Welcome, Lintao Peng
CNM extends a hearty welcome to Dr. Lintao Peng, a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Xuedan Ma.

Lintao received his doctorate in Applied Physics from Northwestern University. His research at Argonne focuses primarily on the study of electrical transport properties of novel materials with emphasis on van der Waals two-dimensional materials, thin films and chalcogenides. Currently, his research focus is on 1) quantum optics of semiconductor nanomaterials, and 2) temperature dependent single molecule/particle optical spectroscopy and imaging.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Welcome, Xu Zhang
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Xu Zhang, an Enrico Fermi postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Lopez, to CNM.

Xu received his doctorate in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research at Argonne focuses primarily on the intersection of nanotechnology and soft electronics. He also gives special focus to enabling ubiquitous energy harvesting, sensing and communication building blocks to build smart soft machines that can adapt to their environments and enable applications that are not feasible with existing rigid and planar technologies. 
 
 
 
 
IMPORTANT REMINDERS
 
 
 
 
 
INCLUDE CNM ACKNOWLEDGMENT STATEMENT IN YOUR PUBLICATIONS
It is your responsibility—and a requirement—to include the approved CNM acknowledgment statement in all published reports of work conducted at the CNM as a result of a user proposal, whether in whole or in part.

CONSIDER PUBLISHING IN HIGH-IMPACT NANOSCIENCE JOURNALS
Please consider publishing your work in a top 20 high-impact journal. The U.S. Department of Energy recognizes a selection of journals that convey especially high-impact nanoscience and nanotechnology studies from the Nanoscale Science Research Centers (NSRCs) to the public domain. The NSRC user community, including CNM’s user community, should consider publishing in these journals when appropriate. 

Also, please be sure to report all publications to the CNM User Office.
