At a very small, or "nano" scale, materials behave differently. The study of nanomaterials is much more than miniaturization — scientists are discovering how changes in size change a material's properties.
From sunscreen to computer memory, the applications of nanoscale materials research are all around us. Researchers at Argonne's Center for Nanoscale Materials are creating new materials, methods and technologies to address some of the world's greatest challenges in energy security, lightweight but durable materials, high-efficiency lighting, information storage, environmental stewardship and advanced medical devices.
