3/27/15 - ORNL's Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences seeks proposals

The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is soliciting proposals for user-initiated nanoscience research that will make effective use of CNMS facilities and staff expertise.

The CNMS nanoscience research program provides users with access to a broad range of capabilities for nanomaterials design, synthesis, characterization, and theory/modeling/simulation in order to carry out studies that will significantly advance our understanding of nanoscale phenomena and develop functional nanomaterials systems.

Access is provided at no cost to users for research that is in the public domain and intended for publication in the open literature.

Successful applicants will be able to use CNMS facilities starting Aug. 1. The deadline for applications is April 29. For more information, visit

Prospective users are encouraged to contact CNMS staff members in their respective research areas to discuss their proposal ideas and learn more about the specific capabilities of interest to them. Click here for an online directory.
