Biljana became Assistant Research Professor

We proundly announce that since 22th January 2021., Biljana has a new scientific title of Assistant Research Profesor at the Insitute of Physics Belgrade. We wish her a lot of success in her research in the years to come.

SPIG 2020

Ivke, Biljana and our MSc student Ivan Traparić participated in this year’s jubilee 30th Symposium of Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG 2020). Because of the bad situation in Serbia due to Coronavirus pandemic, SPIG 2020 was organized completely in online format. The honor to give the introductory talk had Acad. Prof. dr Zoran Petrović. Ivke was member of the Scientific Committee for the forth consecutive time. Also, Ivke chaired the Thursday’s mourning Plenary Session.

At the poster presentation part of the conference, Biljana presented the poster entitled “Appearance of Be II 436.1 nm line with forbidden component in LIBS plasma”, while Ivan presented the poster entitled “VUV Spectroscopy of the He II – Lyman Series for electron density estimation”.

We are also proud to announce that we invited five lecturers. First, Tony Donne, the Programme Manager of EUROfusion and head of the Fusion Physics Division at the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER) gave the plenary talk “Challenges and Progress on the Path Towards Fusion Electricity”. Second, Sibylle Günter, Scientific Director of IPP (Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics) gave the plenary lecture “The Two Conceps of Magnetic Confinement: Tokamak and Stellerator”. Third invited lecturer was Dimitri Batani from University of Bordeaux, who was invited to held the lecture at 1st BegFust (Belgrade Fusion Science and Technology Workshop), which was unfortunately postponed. Nevertheless, prof. Batani held the plenary lecture entitled “Current Status of the Laser Fusion Research and the Shock Ignition Approach”Fourth invited lecturer was Sebastian Brezinsek from Forschungszentrum JülichInstitute of Energy and Climate Research, who gave the topical invited lecture “Plasma-Wall interactions in Wendelstein 7-X Operating with Graphite Divertor”. Fifth invited lecturer was Daiji Kato from NIFS (National Institute for Fusion Science) Japan, who gave the topical invited lecture entitled “Compact Electron Beam Ion Trap for Spectroscopy of Multiple Charged Ions“.

Biljana defended her PhD Thesis

We are proud to announce that Biljana defended her PhD Thesis entitled “Istraživanja kompleksnih oblika spektralnih linija berilijuma u prisustvu berilijumske prašine” (“Investigation of Complex Shapes of Beryllium Spectral Lines in the Presence of Beryllium Dust”) on 3rd August 2020 at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Novi Sad. Thesis advisors were dr Milivoje Ivković and dr Igor Savić, the PhD Defense Committee president was dr Stevica Đurović while the Committee members were dr Lazar Gavanski and dr Bratislav Obradović.

Because of the current situation due to Coronavirus pandemic in Serbia, none of the laboratory members were allowed to be present at the public part of PhD defense.

Biljana EWCPS Attendance

MilosAs you might remember from our earlier, Biljana was in Pau (France) for attending 18th European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectroscopy (EWCPS) from 3rd to 8th February 2019.

She gave a lecture entitled “Uncovering Beryllium line with forbidden component”:

Biljana’s new publication

Milos We are proudly presenting published article by Biljana, her second article this year as the first author. However, the significant contribution of co-authors should not overseen. The article is entitled “Forbidden component of the Be II 436.1 nm line recorded from pulsed gas discharge plasma” and published by Europhysics Letters journal.

Biljana gets EWCPS Grant

MilosWe are proudly announcing that Biljana obtained the student grant for 18th European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectroscopy (EWCPS), held in Pau (France) from 3rd to 8th February 2019. She will give a lecture on her PhD-related findings, that have obviously impressed the Scientific Committee.

SPIG 2018

All members of the laboratory participated at the 29th Summer School and International Symposium on the Physics of Ionized Gases (SPIG 2018) held in Belgrade (Serbia). Again, Prof. Кonjević held the introductory talk. Ivke was member of the Scientific Committee for the third consecutive time. Marijana, Milica and Marko each presented the poster titled “Underwater Ablation with Two Different Laser Wavelength”, “Nanoparticles on a Sample Surface as Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy Enhancers” and “Current Distribution in an Experiment of Z-Pinch with Pre-Embedded Axial Magnetic Field”, respectively. While Biljana and Miloš presented the progress reports on “Beryllium spectral line studies in the presence of beryllium dust” and “Studies or Runway Electrons in COMPASS Tokamak”, respectively.

We are also proud for having invited two lecturers. First, Vincenzo Amendola, an associate professor of physical chemistry in the Department of Chemical Sciences of Padova University (Italy) gave a plenary talk on the “Laser assisted synthesis of magneto-plasmonic and UV-vis-NIR plasmonic nanoparticles”. Next, Andrei Pipa, research associate at the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (Greifswald, Germany) held the talk on the “Equivalent circuit approach for electrical diagnostics of dielectric barrier discharges”. We would like to use this opportunity to thank them for coming.

Biljana’s very first publication

We are happy to announce that Biljana’s article on “Novel plasma source for safe beryllium spectral line studies in the presence of beryllium dust” has been published in Review of Scientific Instruments. We are even more proud that the article was chosen for the AIP Editor Pick’s collection. Note that the significant contribution of co-authors should not overseen.

Biljana’s visit to IPP Greifswald

Biljana visited W7X stellarator at IPP (Institute of Plasma Physics) in Greisfwald May 2017 as part of “jDPG-Seminar on Plasma Physics – Wendelstein”. Beside that, she also had a tour to the Lubmin nuclear power station where she pushed the red button!
