Research Areas

Scientific interests of Nenad Bundaleski are related to experimental surface science and vacuum technologies, with a particular focus on secondary electron emission, low pressure measurement devices (mainly ionisation vacuum gauges) and fundamental surface phenomena including surface segregation, adsorption, desorption, etc.

He is working on the development of carbon based chemically stable low secondary electron yield surfaces, being of major interest in accelerator physics and space technologies. Another area of his expertise is characterisation of nanostructured surfaces (e.g. nanoparticles, ultrathin films and non-uniform multiphase systems in general) by means of X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and other surface sensitive techniques. Finally, his current research also encompasses physics of hot cathode ionisation gauges, spanning from thermionic emission, via electron impact ionisation and charged particle optics, to the various approaches in ion and electron detection.

At the moment, he is a (co-)supervisor of two PhD students, Principle Investigator of a collaboration project with CERN (CERN/FIS-TEC/0039/2019) and co-author of about 100 journal papers with h-index h-22 (Scopus, March 2022).
