Paul Evans (CNM UEC Chair); Soo-Hyun Tark, Student Poster Prize winner (Northwestern
University); and Eric Isaacs (CNM Director)
The fourth Annual CNM Users Meeting was held May 10-12, 2007. Events included: workshops, a keynote and plenary science session,
and short courses introducing new facilities. Vendor exhibits, poster sessions, and a banquet rounded out the festivities.
Four highly successful technical workshops were held on the topics of:
- Hard X-Ray Nanoprobe
- Synthesis and Self-Assembly of Nanomaterials (115kb pdf)
- Nanelectronics (48kb pdf)
Nataliya Yufa of the University of Chicago was selected to give an oral presentation of her poster, titled "Arraying Nanoparticles
and DNA with Diblock Copolymer Templates," during the 2007 Users Week. This work was done in collaboration with Seth Darling
(CNM) and Steve Sibener (UofC) (poster C-018).
Soo-Hyun Tark of Northwestern University captured the Student Poster Award at the CNM Users Meeting, for his poster titled "An
Electronic Detection Platform for On-chip Bio-chem Sensing and Diagnostics Using MOSFET-Embedded Microcantilever Array" (poster
C-015). The award was announced at the CNM Banquet and Mr. Tark will receive a cash award and certificate.
The CNM Poster Committee was comprised of Paul Evans (CNM UEC Chair), Gayle Woloschak (UEC), Stephen Streiffer (CNM), and Katie
CNM Users' Executive Committee Elections
In conjunction with the 2007 CNM Users Meeting, the CNM Users Organization elected two new representatives to the Users' Executive Committee (UEC):
- Dillon Fong, Materials Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory
- Teri Odom, Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University
The UEC serves as an advocacy group for the CNM and its user community, provides advice to the Director on matters affecting
the user community, and ensures good communication between the CNM user community and CNM management. The CNM UEC is also responsible
for organizing the scientific content of the annual Users Meetings.
