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 composition in the paper filler as well as in all coating layers. Both phase fillers and pigments can be identified by phase ...

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 particles in the alloy) and the study of the Ce inhibitor/substrate mechanism were performed with scanning electron microscopy/ ...

The Carniolan Bee House (CBH) was opened in Višnja gora last November

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 ...

Analysis of illumination

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 ...
