Scientists, disciplines converge at Center for Nanoscale Materials

While Mother Nature has been working at the nanoscale since the beginning of time, researchers have only recently begun to develop the tools and techniques for studying and building materials at this tiniest of scales. Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) offers scientists from many different disciplines the opportunity to hone these skills and use state-of-the-art equipment to delve deeper into how materials behave at the nanoscale level.

“Nanoscience is, by definition, interdisciplinary,” says CNM Director Eric Isaacs. “As a field that sees the world from the perspective of the nanometer (one-billionth of a meter), it begins to unlock the mysteries in the realm of atoms and electrons — the building blocks of biology, physics and chemistry.”
