MAIN AREAS OF ACTIVITY
Dr Matovic took part in involving modern techniques and methods in production of ceramic materials. He achieved relevant results in the several areas such as:
a) Synthesis of nonoxidised ceramic powders
b) Synthesis of nanoparticle oxidized powders
c) Sintering of Si3N4 and SiC in presence of low-temperature liquid phase
d) Studying of the structure of nonstechiometrical solid solutions appreciable for ceramic components of fuel cells
e) New ceramics based on biomimetic approach

SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITIES
Non-oxide ceramics, SOFC, mechanochemistry, densification, phase transformations and crystal growth during temperature-pressure treatments and material characterization.
