Welcome and feel safe: this site does not use ANY COOKIES nor any spyware at all!
We strive for excellence in our activities, which embrace scientific and technical software, consulting, educational outreach, and our own scientific research.
In particular, they comprise:
- Magnetic Resonance (software, hardware, and methods) in all its forms:
- Spectroscopy (NMR) in-vitro and in-vivo
- Relaxometry (MRR) in fixed as well as variable fields
- Imaging (MRI)
- Scientific computing algorithms and principles
- Software libraries for STEM computing
- Geothermal reservoirs dynamics
- Research in pure and applied mathematics
- Educational texts, tools and utilities
ABOUT our Company
In its current form, established in January 2018, Extra Byte Snc
builds on two decades of a one-man venture with the same name (except for the 'Snc'), best known in the web-space under the nickname Stan's Hub
. We will continue that rich heredity and expand it further to the enhanced benefit of all our Partners, Customers and website Visitors.
Extra Byte is registered in Italy but operates and offers its services world-wide.

For any enquiries, comments, or requests,
We offer many resources which are FREE of charge. These include:
A large volume of databases, papers, talk slides, and educational tools.
Browse the links in the right column, and at the bottom of this page.
We manage the Stan's Library (ISSN 2421-1230), an open-access online e-zine with the pretention to become a STEM magazine. So far Stan's Library was carrying mostly Stan's own articles, posters and talks, but we are planning to open it up for other contributors. You will hear more about it soon.
Contractual third party collaborations:
We develop technical & scientific software for third parties on a contractual basis (see the PARTNERS section). These may be Libraries as well as Applications, written in C++ (but other languages might be also considered).
We might consider signing additional contracts, provided that they do not conflict with the existing ones, and that they can be planned on a reasonably long-term scale. Since we are presently running up to full capacity, we accept only large commitments justifying an incerement in the Company size.
Technical and scientific services:
Consulting in all areas of Magnetic Resonance (NMR, MRI, ESR, NQR). Since we have over 50 years of experience, including design, production, sales, installation, and use of instruments, we can help you with any problem you might have, and we will do it willingly, to the best of our knowledge. You pay only if and when satisfied!
Expertize in legal litigations involving Magnetic Resonance. This may involve safety aspects of an installation or procedure, or else an instrument or a scanner not performing up to expectations.
Consulting on geothermal reservoirs software (T2Well, TOUGH2).
We love solving applied math problems. If you have one, let us have a GO on it. Should we fail, we would tell you why and not charge anything (yes, we know that unsolvable problems exist).
Products sold directly to end-users:
We are offering selected advertizing estate for targeted banners on our resource pages on the Stan's Hub web site. We are still working out the details, but should you be interested, drop us a note.
More will be coming: keep tracking this Section!

10 Feb 2018:
On Stan's Hub
(at ebyte.it) removed all old commercial venture pages.
1 Feb 2018:
Extra Byte Snc
becomes the Owner and Publisher of Stan's Library
(ISSN 2421-1230). The President and Chief Editor of the open-access e-zine
is Stanislav Sykora
(Stan's Library founder). Ester Maria Vasini
was named its Executive Director.
31 Jan 2018:
Extra Byte Snc
becomes the owner of the web domains ebyte.it
This comprizes the historic Stan's Hub
which will continue.
The domain stan.it so far just redirects to Stan's Hub, but it will soon acquire new contents.
18 Jan 2018:
Started this website (it is still under construction, but already full of resources).
16 Jan 2018:
Extra Byte Snc di Sykora Stanislav e Vasini Ester Maria was constituted
as an Unlimited Company (snc) and registered at the Italian Camera di Commercio.
