Projects


Physics of nanostructured oxide materials and strongly correlated systems


Institution: Institut za Fiziku
Contractor: Ministry of Science and Environmental Protection
Contract type: National Research Project
Status: New
Begin: 31.12.2010. End: 30.12.2014.
Leadership: Dr. Zorana Dohčević-Mitrović
Contrnote:
Project consists of two sub-projects: physics of strongly correlated electron systems and physics of nano-oxide magnetic materials. In the framework of the first subproject we will investigate the spin, charge and energy transport in inhomogeneous systems with strong correlations(superconductors, spintronic and thermoelectric materials) using detailed physical characterization methods (X-ray diffraction, inelastic light scattering, absorption and photoluminescence, ellipsometry or electron-microprobe investigations, transport and magnetic measurements). We will tune intrinsic anisotropic properties and we will perform theoretical modeling based on experimental results.
In the framework of the second subproject the sol-gel and chemistry methods will be further developed and optimized for production of oxide nanomaterials based on TiO2, CeO2, ZnO and their derivatives doped with transition or rare earth elements. The proper characterization of these materials will be performed by the same set of advanced experimental techniques. Multiscale computer modeling will be used to investigate molecular transport through nanoporous media, whereas density functional theory will be performed in order to follow the changes of the electronic band structure of oxide-based nanomaterials with doping. We expect to develop controlled production processes in which nanostructure and nanomaterials with desired properties will be created for environmental and spintronic applications.
