U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) Visits the Center for Nanoscale Materials
U.S. Senator and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) toured the CNM during a visit
to Argonne National Laboratory on August 29, 2007. CNM Division Director Eric Isaacs (left) discussed recent research results
on new materials for flexible hydrogen sensors with Durbin, Laboratory
Director Robert Rosner, and Associate Laboratory Director for Physical Sciences Al Sattelberger. The research is a collaboration
between researchers in CNM and Argonne's Materials Sciences Division (Applied Physics Letters, 90, 213107 (2007).
Eric Isaacs displays to Sen. Durbin the CNM hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline at Sector 26 of
the Advanced Photon Source. This instrument provides fluorescence, diffraction, and transmission imaging of materials with a spatial
resolution of 30 nm.
