Research activities:

The study of the grow, modification and structure of thin layers or multilayers used in microelectronics, optics, optoelectronics and biomedicine. Study of interaction and interface properties of polymers and metals. Systems prepared by ion implantation, ion beam mixing, ion beam assisted deposition, ion degradation, plasma deposition are studied using nuclear analytical methods (RBS, ERDA, PIXE etc.) RBS-channeling is used to study crystalline materials and host atom positions, the fundamental studies concerning stopping power of channeled ions are realized.
