Chair of Materials Science at Extreme Conditions

Current Research Interests

Synthesis, structural studies, and property measurements for  electronic materials such as transition metal oxides. High  pressure-high temperature synthesis is an important part of our  programme. We use synchrotron x-ray and neutron diffraction facilities  to determine long range and local atomic structures, and associated  charge, orbital or magnetic orders. Low temperature measurements,  sometimes at high pressures, are used to explore (super)conducting and  magnetic properties.
