BudgetSensors®, a Bulgarian manufacturer of silicon and silicon nitride probes, as well as AFM accessories for Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM), has opened a state of the art Nanotechnology Centre in Sofia, Bulgaria.

BudgetSensors® Opens first Nanotechnology Centre in Bulgaria

Bulgaria | Posted on August 13th, 2007

The Centre, which is the first of its kind in Bulgaria, is located in the BudgetSensors® Head Quarters. It features different Atomic Force Microscopes from various manufacturers, as well as different kinds of related equipment.

BudgetSensors®‚ Nanotechnology Centre is headed by Dr. Yordan Stefanov. Prior to joining BudgetSensors® in 2006, Dr. Stefanov has graduated with honours in Physics from the University of Sofia and has done his Ph.D. with focus on Atomic Force Microscopy at the University of Darmstadt, Germany.

Dr. Stefanov has been heading the Applications Department at BudgetSensors® which is hosting the BudgetSensors® AFM Applications Database and is responsible for answering all technical inquires, received by customers from all over the world.

"Dr. Stefanov‚s solid experience in AFM gives him the ideal theoretical and practical background, needed for heading this new facility of BudgetSensors®", said Dr. Kamen Nikolov, CEO of BudgetSensors ®

The Nanotechnology Centre will have a dual purpose for BudgetSensors®:
On the one hand, it will help giving BudgetSensors® customers an even better insight and guidance on specific AFM applications. On the other hand, it will widen BudgetSensors‚ focus by offering the services of this facility to external customers. The Bulgarian industry, which has been growing on the fast track over the last 5 years, has so far lacked access to any AFM related equipment and infrastructure.

"After Bulgaria's joining the European Union in 2007, many exciting opportunities lie ahead of Bulgarian companies. Being the Bulgarian pioneer in Nanotechnology, BudgetSensors® now offers all its expertise to the fast growing Bulgarian industry, which hereby will probably be the main beneficiary from one of the biggest investments of BudgetSensors® in 2007.", added Dr. Nikolov.
