User Facilities at a Glance

All User Facilities

High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR)

at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The HFIR facility is the United States’ highest flux reactor-based neutron source, and is a major neutron scattering user facility as well as the world’s leading source of elements heavier than plutonium for research, medicine, and industrial applications.

Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN)

at Brookhaven National Laboratory

The CFN is one of the five Nanoscale Science Research Centers created by the Department of Energy to investigate, understand, and exploit the unique characteristics of materials and phenomena at the nanoscale.

Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT)

at Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories

The CINT focuses on exploring the path from scientific discovery to the integration of nanostructures into the micro and macro-worlds.

Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS)

at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The CNMS integrates nanoscale science research with neutron science, synthesis science, and theory/modeling/stimulation.

Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM)

at Argonne National Laboratory

The CNM focuses on research in advanced materials, complex oxides, nanophotonics, and bio-inorganic hybrids.

The Molecular Foundry (TMF)

at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

The Molecular Foundry is fully equipped with state-of-the-art, sometimes one-of-a-kind instruments providing laboratories for materials science, physics, chemistry, biology, and molecular biology.

Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility

at Global Network

ARM is a multi-platform scientific user facility with instruments at fixed and varying locations around the globe for obtaining continuous field measurements of atmospheric data.

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)

at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

EMSL provides the scientific community with a problem-solving environment that enables researchers to use multiple combinations of capabilities to obtain a mechanistic understanding of physical, chemical, and intra- and inter-cellular processes and interactions, and to incorporate this information into numerical models to better understand how biological, environmental, atmospheric, and energy systems function at higher spatial- and temporal scales, and to address complex challenges facing DOE and the nation.

Joint Genome Institute (JGI)

at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

JGI provides genome sequencing, genome data acquisition, and genome analyses in support of DOE mission needs in bioenergy, carbon cycling and biosequestration, and biogeochemical processes.

DIII-D National Fusion Facility (DIII-D)

at General Atomics

DIII-D, the largest magnetic fusion user facility in the U.S., is a tokamak confinement device with significant engineering flexibility to explore the optimization of the advanced tokamak approach to fusion energy production.
