"The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences"
ABSTRACT:
The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences is the newest user facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Located adjacent to the Spallation Neutron Source, the CNMS is one of 5 nanoscience user facilities being built by the Department of Energy. CNMS is open to scientists and engineers for research to understand the phenomena that control the properties of nanoscale materials. CNMS emphasizes synthesis and characterization, including neutron scattering and electron microscopy. One important capability is a 10,000 sq ft nanofabrication clean room facility. CNMS will also integrate theory and modeling with the experimental program, a critical aspect of the research. The presentation will discuss the capabilities of the new facility, the scientific program, and opportunities for research and collaboration.
