Both devices (an X-ray diffractometer and a fluorescence lifetime spectrometer) have been installed at the Ajdovščina Campus of the University of Nova Gorica. At the same time, the development of measuring systems for measuring the electrical conductivity of materials in a wide temperature range is in progress.

Both of the two main research equipment installations are widely used for characterizing nanostructured and traditional materials. Neither of these pieces of equipment was available before the establishment of the CoE.

Fan-out modules distribute the timing signal generated by an Event Generator to an array of Event Receivers. The Fan-Out Concentrator module provides both a fan-out and a concentrated backwards channel from the EVRs towards an EVG. Two-way communication was introduced with the Modular Register Mapping which is currently available for the CompactPCI/PXI and PMC form factor modules.

The Fan-Out Concentrator operates as a one in - eight out fan-out and eight in - one out concentrator. Events, distributed bus bits and data buffers are concentrated and sent further towards the EVG.
