Sandia Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies

The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) is one of five Department of Energy (DOE) nanoscale science research centers.  This state-of-the-art facility is jointly operated by Sandia National Laboratories and the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The facility encompasses a core facility with two gateway facilities, one located at SNL and the other located at LANL. CINT provides a foundation for the development of nanotechnologies, which are important to the Department of Energy in its primary mission areas of national defense, energy and the environment. The CINT Core Facility adds a critical dimension to the nanoscale science research center complex by interfacing nanomaterials with the micro and macro worlds. One of the primary goals of the CINT Core Facility is to provide an interdisciplinary environment that can serve the scientific community, including those from government, university and private sectors.

The facility is pursuing the LEED certification.
