CINT: Big Science AT THE Nanoscale


Important information for CINT users

We extend our best wishes to your families, friends, and colleagues, as the world confronts the continued challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this time both the Core and Gateway facilities are open to the CINT user community.  The Core no longer requires a quarantine for users traveling from within the United States, the Gateway currently has a 1-week quarantine unless users are fully vaccinated.  Visitors coming to the facilities from international destinations will still require a quarantine period.  We will continue to follow all New Mexico and lab COVID-19 requirements as they evolve.

The safety and health of the CINT community and their families is our top priority. All visits must be arranged in advance with the CINT user support scientist to ensure appropriate occupancy of each lab space before coming on-site.

If you have questions or if you have a user proposal related to COVID-19 research, please contact the CINT Program Management Team.
