Argonne National Laboratory

The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) hosts biweekly colloquia that provide a forum for topical multidisciplinary talks in areas of interest to the CNM and that offer a mechanism for fostering interactions with potential facility users.

When: Alternate Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.

Where: Argonne National Laboratory, Colloquiums present in 2 formats, VIRTUAL via Zoom and HYBRID (in-person (Building 440, Room A105/106) and Zoom. See Agenda for information.

Colloquium Committee Members: Xiao-Min Lin (Chair), Pierre Darancet, Ralu Divan, Xuedan Ma, Elena Rozhkova, Jianguo Wen
