The two-character ISO 3166 country code for SLOVENIA.


1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Slovenia. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Slovenian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Slovenia. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Slovenia. Each municipality has its own code with the prefix "SI." For example, the code for the Municipality of Bled is ISO 3166-2:SI-003.

Silicon suffers an additional disadvantage when it comes to handling light.
During etching, the San Diego chemists project a black-and-white slide-in the case of these photos, George Washington's face from a dollar bill - onto the silicon wafer through a lens that reduces the size of the image.
Using a charge-coupled device, the Stuttgart group showed that siloxene materials can emit a rainbow of colors, including porous silicon's red and blue, a color not yet reported from porous silicon and one crucial for creating color displays or signs, Brandt says.
Where bright light hits phosphorusdoped silicon, red luminescence results; dim light leds to an orange glow; darkened parts do not glow at all.
SiGen has adopted its established and proven technologies for the solar industry, resulting in high performance, cost competitive single crystal silicon for solar cells.
Davis discussed his group's achievements last week at the first International Conference on Amorphous and Grystalline Silicon Carbide, hosted by Howard University in Washington, D.
Silicon Laboratories provides robust tools to support the C8051F52/3x MCU family, offering a fully integrated development environment that interfaces to the on-chip debug module via a USB to serial debug adapter.
What's more, because their techniquegives the researchers remarkable control over the small-scale structure of crystals, it will allow them to custom-tailor the properties of a great variety of materials in addition to silicon, and to create crystals that have never before appeared in nature.
