The cross-facility workshops cover scientific themes and research topics spanning the scientific scope of all three user facilities.

The development, understanding, and application of new materials and molecular systems hinges on resolving deep correlations between their structure and their electronic, optical, magnetic, and chemical properties. These correlations need to be explored on the nanometer length scales where critical physical processes such as charge separation, photophysics, catalysis, magnetic-exchange interactions, among others, take place, and where unique opportunities arise in discovery of new phenomena and design of new materials with new properties. At the APS, the CNM, and the EMC, we are developing and using a powerful and complementary array of microscopy platforms to explore these materials at these critical length scales in a variety of environments. This workshop will showcase efforts at the laboratory and elsewhere to push the frontier of nanoscale imaging in order to extend our understanding of advanced materials and nanoscale structures and to harness their unique properties for next generation applications.
