Research interests

Dr Fabijanic's research has been focused on the development novel duplex surface treatments for ferrous metals. Significant emphasis has been on the commercialisation of a patented low temperature duplex surface treatment for aluminium metal forming tooling. Other current research is centered on fluid bed reactor chemical vapour deposition processes (FBR-CVD) for the treatment of metal surfaces. Future research aims to expand the fluidized bed technology platform to include the surface engineering of light metals, coating of powders and fibres, and recycling of materials.
