Jelena Živojinović has been working at the Institute since 1. November 2011.


Research areas

The research Jelena Živojinović is focused on the synthesis and characterization of mechanically activated non-doped and doped perovskite powders and ceramic materials. The emphasis of the research is on the examination of the influence of mechanical activation and the type of dopants on the structure of powders and ceramic materials, as well as the influence of the obtained new structures on the electrical properties of ceramics.

Keywords: mechanical activation, synthesis of powders of perovskite structure, sintering, characterization of powders and ceramics, electroceramic materials.
