Gas Discharges at Low Pressures
M.M. Pejović, G.S. Ristić, J.P. Karamarković, M.M. Pejović, E.N. Živanović, N.T. Nešić
The investigations of non-equilibrium, low temperature plasma in laboratory are performed. These investigations consider processes which occurre during the pre-breakdown, breakdown and afterglow period. The analysis of these processes are performed on the basis of the electrical methods of the electrical breakdown time delay, the breakdown voltage and glow current measurements. These measurements are performed varying different parameters such as the afterglow period, overvoltage, glow time, dose of gamma, UV and X rays.
The experimental results lead to development of qualitative method for the separation of individual particles forming during the previous breakdown and discharge, responsible for the following breakdown, as well as the breakdown voltage statistical estimation. The theoretical analysis of the experimental data should result in development of future quantitative method for separation of particular particles. These results would have significant influence on the design and manufacture of gaseous components that work in the pre-breakdown and breakdown regime.

Terahertz Optics
J.P. Karamarković
The research is targeted to the development of quasioptical coupling concept for terahertz microelectronics. The goal is to create a design tool for modelling of small integrated terahertz antennas and optical coupling elements such as mirrors and lenses. The approach includes a solution of the Maxwell equations with the full method of moments. When applied to the planar antenna structure the method provides the current distribution in the antenna. The current distribution forms the input for the physical ray-tracing based on the Huygens principle that reveals the directional properties of the entire optical system.
