CINT: Big Science AT THE Nanoscale


The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies is a Department of Energy-funded nanoscience research facility that provides users from around the world with access to state of the art expertise and instrumentation in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment with a focus on nanoscience integration.


It is our great pleasure to announce that Beth Stelle has joined CINT as the Communications & Outreach Coordinator. Beth was previously working as a research fellow and visiting scholar at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada and The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM where she conducted research at both universities on the multimodal nature of speech production. Beth holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. Welcome Beth!

CINT scientists honored as APS Fellows: Two CINT scientists were tapped this year as new Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS), a significant honor for the Laboratory and its people. The honorees are, Han Htoon, and Stuart A. Trugman.

Brad Boyce as a CINT scientist: CINT is pleased to welcome Brad Boyce as a CINT scientist.  Dr. Boyce is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories.  Dr. Boyce received the B.S. degree from Michigan Technological University in 1996 in Metallurgical Engineering and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 1998 and 2001 from the University of California at Berkeley.  Dr. Boyce joined the technical staff at Sandia in 2001 where his research interests lie in mechanisms of deformation and failure at the micro and nanoscale.  Dr. Boyce has published over 90 peer reviewed archival publications (H-index=31) in areas such as microsystems reliability, nanoindentation, fracture in structural alloys, weld metallurgy, ocular tissue viscoelasticity, and fatigue mechanisms.  Dr. Boyce serves on the Editorial Board of Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures. He has also served as a guest editor for Thin Solid Films, Experimental Mechanics, International Journal of Fatigue, and International Journal of Fracture as well as MRS proceedings books.  He has organized 11 technical symposia at international conferences and has chaired the Rio Grande Symposium on Advanced Materials.  In March, Dr. Boyce will join the Board of Directors for TMS, the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society.  Dr. Boyce is a past recipient of the Hertz Foundation fellowship, TMS Young Leader award, and ASM’s Marcus A. Grossman Young Author award. 

Han Htoon, of the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies: For pioneering accomplishments in development of single nanostructure, optical spectroscopy/imaging techniques, elucidating fundamental/quantum optical processes of quantum dots and single wall carbon nanotubes, and device integration of optical nanomaterials. Nominated in the Division of Chemical Physics.

Stuart A. Trugman, of Theoretical Division: For outstanding and original contributions to polaron physics, quantum Hall effect, far from equilibrium phenomena, disorder and superconductivity. Nominated in the APS Division of Condensed Matter Physics.
