The next call for proposals at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) is March 1—31. If you are interested in preparing a proposal, reach out to a CINT scientist for advice that will strengthen the proposal, such as estimating the amount of facility time required and discussing opportunities for collaboration.

CINT is an Office of Science national user facility that helps the international research community perform cutting-edge research in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It is available free of charge for open science.

As a user facility, CINT has the structure and mission to collaborate widely across academia, industry and within the national labs. Capabilities range from material synthesis and a well-equipped nanofabrication facility, to state-of-the-art imaging and other characterization methods.

More Lab researchers using CINT

CINT is jointly operated by Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories. More researchers from these labs are taking advantage of the user facility. In 2017, 253 users came from the two labs. As a result of the fall 2017 call for proposals, CINT accepted 116 new user projects, 20 percent of which came from the host labs.

The work performed at CINT is highly valued by the research community. In 2015, users from the two host labs generated 54 publications based on their work at CINT. Of these, 19 publications were in high-impact journals, including Science, Physical Review Letters, and ACS Nano, among others.
