The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) is a DOE Office of Science Nanoscale Science Research Center dedicated to nanoscience and nanotechnology. It was constructed under a joint partnership between DOE and the State of Illinois, as part of DOE’s Nanoscale Science Research Center program.

Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source (APS) plays a key role in the shared CNM/APS Hard X-ray Nanoprobe Beamline, enabling unprecedented views deep within nanomaterials.

Submit a proposal to use our facilities

Access to CNM capabilities, tools and facilities is provided through a peer-reviewed proposal submission process. Although individual capabilities are managed by CNM’s research groups, any combination of capabilities can be used across the CNM scientific portfolio and requested in your user proposal.
