CINT Annual Meeting

CINT 2021 Annual Meeting

The 2021 CINT Annual Meeting was an opportunity for our user community to join together with CINT scientists and leadership, share ideas and scientific results, and help decide future directions for the CINT user program.

This year we focused on three exciting and timely topics:

-Advanced Optical Microscopy
-Emerging Nanoscale Materials Research Aided with Ion Beams
-Hybrid Photonic and Quantum Low-Dimensional materials

Together, these topics represent growing areas of impact for the CINT program and users.


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.

Effective immediately, All CINT facilities , along with Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, will follow updated CDC guidance requiring face coverings in all buildings, even for those who are vaccinated.

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 Leadership Team.
