Collaborative Research

Access multiple user facilities at one location

Users at the CNM can also access Argonne’s four other user facilities for multimodal and cross-functional projects. The CNM works with its partner user facility, the Advanced Photon Source (APS), to provide access to world-leading and unique characterization methods. As a principal component of its mission, the center capitalizes on the brilliance of the APS for a Hard X-ray Nanoprobe beamline.

National User Facility

Advanced Photon Source

The Advanced Photon Source (APS) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory provides ultra-bright, high-energy storage ring-generated X-ray beams for research in almost all scientific disciplines.
