Špela Kunej workings as Research Associate in Advance Material Department, Jozef Stefan Institute
My current research interests lie in areas of synthesis/processing, crystallization, epitaxial growth, microstructure and functional properties of thin film materials obtained from solution-based methods, with a focus on novel composite material, dielectric, tunable and ferroelectric thin films. Past research were in areas of the solid-state reaction, phase relationships, solid solutions, new phase identification, microstructure and electrical characterization of ceramic materials in systems Bi2O3-TiO2, Bi2O3-ZnO, Bi2O3-TiO2-Nd2O3, Bi2O3-TiO2-Y2O3, and La2O3-TiO2-Mn2O3.
