Curriculum vitae (missing)
During his Ph.D., Zoran worked on dipolar collisions in cooling and trapping of paramagnetic atoms. In particular, he explored a system with a large magnetic dipole moment, Cr, between different combinations of the bosonic isotope 52Cr and the fermionic 53Cr. The interplay between the long-range dipole-dipole magnetic interaction and the hyperfine structure (when present) gives a very rich set of Feshbach resonances. In addition, he investigated the scattering properties of Cr+Rb, as well as He+OH(2Π).
