The 2013 Fall Call for Proposals has closed. Notifications will be sent out in December.
The next call for proposals will be announced March 1, 2014. The database is currently open for Rapid Access Proposals. These should be limited in scope and have strong justification for expedited processing.
If you have recently been to CINT to work on your project, or are just finishing a project, please complete our CINT User Satisfaction Survey.
In response from user requests, we are starting to film a virtual tour of CINT.
Please check out this first installment of
1. an introduction to CINT and
2. Jen Martinez and the capabilities within the Biosuite at the Gateway facility.
Exhibit Open at the Bradbury Science Museum
This past summer, we opened an exhibit about CINT at the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos. This is a permanent exhibit and will be up for many years. If you are in Los Alamos, please stop by and learn about nanoscience and the research going on at CINT. The exhibit focuses on our work with membrane based nanocomposites, metamaterials, nanowires and other energy concepts. There is also a profile on CINT user Ed Flynn of Senior Scientific and his work on creating nanoparticles for cancer detection.
There is also a nice article on the opening in the Los Alamos Daily Post.
CINT User Ed Flynn, standing by the exhibit panel on his user project, attends the opening on July 26th.
