Advanced Materials Research Group is a group within the Laboratory for nuclear and plasma physics in the Institute for nuclear sciences “Vinča”.


The research of our group encompasses a variety of research fields associated with the fundamental and applied investigations of the new materials. Hyperfine interactions have been subject of investigations in this group for a long time within TDPAC, and recently Mössbauer spectroscopy. These experiments are used in research of the structural and dynamic properties of the intermetallic and the semiconductor samples on the atomic scale. As complement to fundamental research, some viable applications have also emerged, particularly in the field of new materials for renewable energy applications, including hydrogen storage, hydrogen production…


The experimental research within the department is strongly supported by theoretical calculations. A detailed theoretical study of the structure, electronic properties and the hyperfine interactions parameters is performed using DFT and molecular dynamics codes.


Investigated samples include intermetallics, semiconductors, nanomaterials, transition metals alloys…
