Welcome to the web page of the Laboratory for the Synthesis of Inorganic Nanotubes and Ropes (LSINR).

In LSNIR we primarly focus on the synthesis and characterization of molybdenum, tungsten and other transition metal dichalcogenides and oxide nanomaterials, more specifically:
  • one and two-dimensional crystals like nanowires (MoO3, WO3, WO3-x), nanotubes (MoS2, WS2, MoWS2), and layered TMD materials
  • polymer nanocomposites (PVDF/PVP/MoO3)
  • aerosol monitoring

The head of LSINR is Prof. Dr. Maja Remškar one of the pioneers in the field of nanotechnology in Slovenia, and in general. In collaboration with co-workers, she has discovered different shapes of nanomaterials, especially of transition metal compounds, like co-axial inorganic nanotubes, nanowires, nanobuds and also “mama”-tubes. LSINR is part of the Solid State Physics Department at Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Prof. Maja Remškar is also the head of the infrastructural centre The Center for Microscopy and Detection of Nanomaterials ( CMD-NANO ) which was established in 2009 as part of Jozef Stefan Infrastructure network.

In the past we were members of few EU projects:

  • COST Action COLOSSAL-CA16109
and participated in three Centre's of Excellence: NAMASTE, POLIMAT and NANOCENTER.
