The Center for Nanoscale Materials’ (CNM) scientific vision, opportunities, activities and organizational structure are outlined in this strategic plan and will guide the center’s path over the next five years.

CNM's scientific strategy is consolidated under three crosscutting and interdependent scientific themes, noted below.  Collectively, they aim at the discovery and integration of materials across different length scales at the extremes of temporal, spatial and energy resolutions:

Theme I - Quantum materials and sensing

Theme II - Manipulating nanoscale interactions

Theme III - Nanoscale dynamics

This strategic plan provides a concise outline of our scientific vision, opportunities, activities, and organizational structure. This document will guide our path over the next five years, with the aim of preserving CNM as a world-class user facility, where we are ready to provide capabilities for user needs in the next two to five years, and where our scientists can help shape the future of research in the nanosciences.
