Abstract:
The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at the Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, one of the premier nanoscience research facilities in the world, has been declared fully operational.

Argonne's Center for Nanoscale Materials is fully operational

ARGONNE, IL | Posted on October 2nd, 2007

The Department of Energy issued the CD-4b resolution approving the start of full operations on October 1, marking the completion of the process of supplying and furnishing Argonne's newest user facility. "The CNM building opened for research in May 2006, but the time since has been spent largely setting up the facility, including hiring," said Katie Carrado Gregar, manager of the CNM's User and Outreach Programs.

"The CNM will provide access to some of the most advanced nanoscience technology in the world, for roughly 200 users a year from around the nation and the world who will come to Argonne to take advantage of its unique resources," she explained.

Approximately 50 user projects have been able to take advantage of the facility so far, and the recent completion of the hard x-ray nanoprobe beamline this summer and the installation of a Beowulf-class supercomputer array with 12 teraflop capacity for computational and experimental nanoscience is expected to engender more interest in the CNM's facilities.

"The past 17 months were devoted to hiring world-class researchers, installing major pieces of equipment, laboratory instrumentation, IT networks, and office furniture," Gregar said. "It has been an extraordinarily busy time to fully equip the building, but at the same time we have been committed to allowing both basic research and user programs to take place as facilities were commissioned."

With the assembly of the facility complete, employees at the CNM will now be able to focus entirely on their research and on facilitating the nearly 90 new user projects that were submitted during the July 2007 call-for-proposals.
