CNM's scientific strategy is consolidated under three crosscutting and interdependent scientific themes, noted below. Collectively, they aim to discover and integrate 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.
