Call for Proposals
CNMS call for User Proposals: High-Impact Nanoscience Research
The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences 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.
Complete information can be obtained by following links from the CNMS home page. Submission deadline is May 4, 2011.
The CNMS website provides detailed descriptions of specific CNMS Research Capabilities that are offered to users, and this list of capabilities is duplicated in checklist form on the downloadable CNMS User Proposal Form. Prospective users are invited and strongly encouraged to contact CNMS staff members in the respective research areas to discuss their proposal ideas and learn more about the specific capabilities of interest to them.
Please review the Guidelines for Submission of a CNMS User Research Proposal and the Instructions for Submitting a Proposal. Approved projects will be granted access to CNMS facilities during the period August 1, 2011 through July 31, 2012.
