Helping you understand, create, and characterize nanomaterials

CINT Gateway Virtual Tour

Welcome to the CINT Gateway!

We invite you to experience our facilities, capabilities, and staff in these short virtual tours.


CINT Co-Director Adam Rondinone welcomes you to explore the CINT Gateway facility.


In-Situ Characterization and Nanomechanics at The Gateway

Within the In-Situ Characterization and Nanomechanics thrust, CINT Users work to better understand deformation mechanisms of materials under different extreme environments.


Quantum Materials Systems at The Gateway

The Quantum Materials Systems thrust supports CINT users through an integrated research suite encompassing materials synthesis, device fabrication, electrical and optical characterization, and theoretical modeling.


Soft, Biological, and Composite Nanomaterials at The Gateway

The Soft, Biological, and Composite Nanomaterials (SBCN) Thrust engages in fundamental nanoscience, studying the organizational principles of multi-scale assembly and applying them for the design and development of bioinspired, soft, and hybrid nanocomposites. The thrust leverages experimental, computational, and advanced characterization expertise to address key questions in nanoscience with the goal of generating functionally integrated systems that are broadly applicable to national research priorities.


Nanophotonics and Optical Nanomaterials at The Gateway

The Nanophotonics and Optical Nanomaterials thrust offers users an optical nanomaterials synthesis and nano-integration lab to conduct colloidal synthesis of semiconductor nanocrystals, including non-blinking giant quantum dots, and plasmonic or magnetic nanomaterials.


Laboratory for Ultrafast Materials and Optical Science at The Gateway

Part of the Nanophotonics and Optical Nanomaterials Thrust, LUMOS’ Ultrafast terahertz spectroscopy capabilities make it possible for Users to explore many exciting materials phenomena, including quasiparticle excitations in magnetic systems, topological magneto-electric effect, and topological quantum phase transition.


Ion Beam Materials Laboratory at The Gateway

This 6,000 sq. ft. facility hosts several accelerators, including a 3 Megavolts (MV) NEC Pelletron Tandem Ion Accelerator with 2 ion sources and 5 beamlines for high energy experiments.
