Brief presentation of the institution

Institute of Physics is a public institute whose main activities constitute scientific research in experimental and theoretical physics.

Institute of Physics was founded in 1960, as an institute devoted to scientific research in solid state physics and physics of ionised gases.
 Although a solid part of nowadays' activities may still be incorporated in such a classification, it is better to say that,
taking into account their scope and range of subjects, today’s activities encompass various branches of physics, such as solid state physics,
surface physics, statistical physics, biological physics, atomic and molecular physics, optical physics and plasma physics.

Institute of Physics employs 35 scientists at permanent positions, 22 PhD students  and postdocs and 26 technical and administrative staff.

Besides Institute’s permanent goal to acquire as high level of research quality as possible, its mission includes also the efforts to ensure
that the research enables the technology transfer to the industry standards through the foundation of spin-off companies.
The third component of our activities is education and outreach. A large number of scientists of the Institute participate in education of students both
through the supervision of graduate and PhD theses and through teaching and undergraduate and graduate studies on Croatian universities.

Institute of Physics is located at one of the calm and green oases in the hilly north part of Zagreb, in the surroundings of kindred faculties
and institutes, and may be reached by twenty minutes’ walk from the very centre of town.

Main Plasma with liquids related topics

- Interaction of atmospheric pressure plasma jets with distiled water in respect to distance of jet orifice to liquid surface, gas liquid and plasma in liquid.

- Development and characterization of plasma reactors for plasma activated water

- laser-produced plasma in liquid for nanoparticles generation

- Use of plasma activated water in agriculture (germination)

 

Main Plasma with liquids related research techniques and equipment

Lab-scale plasma reactors based on discharges at atmospheric pressure

Lab-scale plasma reactors based on laser ablation with ns pulsed lasers

Combination of laser produced plasmas and discharge plasmas in liquids

 

 

Brief information on available facilities related to Plasma with liquids
