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, microfluidics, microelectromechanical systems parts, for lab on chip and bioelectronics. After the analysis we used FIB ...Read more
The Slovenian artist Name: had a goal: to make the smallest graffiti in the world, better known as nanograffiti. His solo work spreads across various places in Europe. He sought cooperation with both local and international artists for the ten pieces in Eindhoven. The ten ultra-small graffiti artworks are all made with nanotechnology. Nanocenter Ljubljana and local party Thermo Fisher Scientific joined for the nano-part. Now you ...Read more
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 composition in the paper filler as well as in all coating layers. Both phase fillers and pigments can be identified by phase ...Read more
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 particles in the alloy) and the study of the Ce inhibitor/substrate mechanism were performed with scanning electron microscopy/ ...Read more
In cooperation with the company Art Rebel 9, which created an adventure exhibition about the Carniolan bee for CBH. We captured a series of images of this honey-bearing insect with a scanning electron microscope at the Nanocenter. Among other things, we also captured footage of the varroa (Varroa destructor), a parasite from the mite subclass that attacks bees. Varroa is also a big problem in Slovenian beekeeping, as it is known that ...Read more
The company wanted to check the lighting parameters. As part of this project, we approached consulting the company by illuminating thin slices with a light-sensitive polymer photo frameable material. The lighting was done in the shape of a pyramid, with patterns of horizontal and vertical lines. Differences between slice patterns in terms of width, depth, and a number of field contacts. The consultation also included the analysis of ...Read more
