The 2014 Spring Call for Proposals has closed. Notifications will be sent out in June.
The next call for proposals will be announced Sept 1, 2014. The database is currently open for Rapid Access Proposals. These should be limited in scope and have strong justification for expedited processing.
If you have recently been to CINT to work on your project, or are just finishing a project, please complete our CINT User Satisfaction Survey.
Mesoscale Science Frontiers Workshop
Please join us in Santa Fe, NM on May 13-16, 2014 for an excellent opportunity to learn the latest in multidiciplinary mesoscale science. Travel grants are available for students/postdocs who wish to present a poster.
Keynote lecture will be given by George Crabtree of Argonne National Laboratory.
2014 User Meeting
The CINT 2014 User Meeting will take place September 22-23, 2014 at the historic La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, NM. As part of the meeting, we will be hosting the 6th International Workshop on Electromagnetic Metamaterials (IWEM-VI). Along with IWEM, we will have two concurrent symposia, one on Nanostructures in Polymers, and the other on nanomechanics.
More details and registration will be available in May.
In response from user requests, we are starting to film a virtual tour of CINT.
Please check out this first installment of
1. an introduction to CINT and
2. Jen Martinez and the capabilities within the Biosuite at the Gateway facility.
Exhibit Open at the Bradbury Science Museum
This past summer, we opened an exhibit about CINT at the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos. This is a permanent exhibit and will be up for many years. If you are in Los Alamos, please stop by and learn about nanoscience and the research going on at CINT. The exhibit focuses on our work with membrane based nanocomposites, metamaterials, nanowires and other energy concepts. There is also a profile on CINT user Ed Flynn of Senior Scientific and his work on creating nanoparticles for cancer detection.
There is also a nice article on the opening in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
CINT User Ed Flynn, standing by the exhibit panel on his user project, attends the opening on July 26th.

One Scientific Community Focused on Nanoscience Integration
The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) is a Department of Energy/Office of Science Nanoscale Science Research Center (NSRC) operating as a national user facility devoted to establishing the scientific principles that govern the design, performance, and integration of nanoscale materials. Through its Core Facility in Albuquerque and Gateway to Los Alamos Facility, CINT provides open access to tools and expertise needed to explore the continuum from scientific discovery to the integration of nanostructures into the micro- and macro world.
