Working with

Case study

Telling stories

Through excellence in expertise and service adapted to partner needs, we are providing expert assistance in materials science, optoelectronics, nanotechnology, and quantum technology.

All case studies


We performed analysis of square pillars, which were made with photolithography technique from SU-8 photoresist for potential future use in microfluidic systems. Thickness of this specific sample was 100 µm. We use this kind of photoresist for different types of applications such as microelectronics industry, ...

Cross-section and surface analysis of paper material

On the surface, we can determine the homogeneity of the coating, the size, and morphology of the particles, and their chemical composition (coating and pigment particles). The cross-section can determine the thickness of the paper and coated layers on both sides, particle size, morphology, and their chemical ...

The study of the Ce inhibitor/substrate mechanism

The main goal was to determine the composition of aluminium alloy 7075-T6, initial corrosion in corrosive media and difference in the formation of the protective film in the presence of corrosion inhibitor, i. e., different cerium salts. Microstructural characterisation (the presence of intermetallic ...

Our clients about us

Similar to our activities that aim to largely direct environmentally friendly technologies and products, Helios finds a common interest with the Nanocenter in acceleration progress. Both teams bring together a critical mass of researchers and equipment and develop a faster route in promising areas of advancement

Peter Venturini, Helios TBLUS

In almost all ways, we seek for new knowledge, which can be used in new products. We acquired in-depth knowledge of the science as well as technology for LCD manufacturing. With Nanocenter we have the ability to develop proprietary technological processes and make selections of most suitable materials.

Bojan Marin, Balder

Since nanotechnology does not limit itself to a single area of usage, we see ourselves expanding our expertise to better understanding the world around us. We look forward with excitement to all the ways that nanoscience and its corresponding advances shape our future.

Marjan Bele, National Institute of Chemistry
