Surfaces, Interfaces & 2D Materials Research @ IF, Zagreb

Welcome to my web page, which is about the research I do. I am a Senior Scientist and work at the Institut za fiziku, Zagreb, and  I am leading Surfaces, Interfaces & 2D Materials Research Group. I am interested in condensed matter physics and surface science. Our present focus is on atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) materials as promising platforms for a development of various applications. This line of research started with epitaxial graphene growth and investigation of the graphene-substrate interaction effects. We were first to experimentally confirm superlattice effects in the electronic structure of graphene emerging from the moiré structure of graphene on Ir(111): Dirac Cones and Minigaps for Graphene on Ir(111).

Figure shows ARPES spectra with relevant area of the bandstructure for the gr/Ir(111) system.

In the meanwhile, the research expanded through the range of atomically thin materials and heterostructures growth methods and characterization. Please check publication list for more details.
