New nanomaterials, such as  MoSIx polymers, offer great potential, ranging from composites to lubricants,  nanosensor carriers and field emitters.

The Center of Excellence in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (CE NS and NT) is the response of Slovenian researchers and industry to meet the challenges of new technology. The CE NS and NT project encompasses top-level facilities that enable researchers to achieve significant results. Since these findings play a key role in the development of industry, many companies have joined CE NS and NT. On the basis of new know-how and technological procedures they hope to raise the technological level of products in line with the development of related fields in other countries.


The high level of student interest in nanotechnology proves that nanosciences and nanotechnology is a considerable challenge for younger generations, and excellent opportunities for research and applications are provided at the Jozef Stefan International Postgraduate School. The founding of CE  facilitates an organised approach to research activities thus enabling young researchers dialogue and cooperation with Slovenian industry.


CE NS AND NT is explicitly interdisciplinary since it includes prominent physicists, chemists and electrical engineers from different fields of research. Taking into account the interests of various research groups and institutions the topics of research projects within CE cover a major part of the Slovenian research sphere whilst retaining an appropriate regional dimension. This CE NS and NT concept represents a meeting point of interests for researchers in public research institutes and industry.
