Fraunhofer Development center X-ray Technology EZRT

The Fraunhofer Development Center X-ray Technology EZRT (FHG, was founded in 1998 as a common Department of the two Fraunhofer Institutes IIS Erlangen and IZFP Saarbrücken. The Development Center X-ray Technology focuses on nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) of objects by means of X-ray methods, especially computed tomography ( At the moment this department employs more than 30 full time researchers in this field.  

Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Institute of Mechanics - OLEM

The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Institute of Mechanics is a leading scientific center with long traditions in fundamental and applied research in mechanics, robotics, mechatronics, biomechanics and physico chemical mechanics ( 

The research group “OLEM” ( which is mainly involved in the NanoXCT project consists of 1 professor, 3 research assistants and 2PhD students. The OLEM profile is related with development and characterization of polymer nanocomposites and nanostructured materials. The structure-properties relationships are studied in details, as focused on: degree of nanofiller dispersion; characterization of nano structure, polymer-nanofiller interactions (bonding polymer layer), effects of nanostructure on physical and mechanical properties. 


The project NanoXCT receives funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° 280987.
