Milka Nikolic's research focuses primarily on developing spectroscopy methods for plasma etching technology. She is interested in both theoretical and experimental approaches to solving mysteries of physics. In particular, she works in combining laser diagnostics with widely used optical emission spectroscopy technique to obtain fundamental plasma properties. Understanding these properties plays an important role in surface modification processes. In addition, she's exploring molecular structure of reactive gasses, such as oxygen and chlorine, and their combinations with argon and nitrogen by developing kinetic models of these atoms and molecules.
