Functional oxide materials discovery using extreme conditions

Project Details

Key findings

Structures and electronic properties of several new high pressure materials have been determined in collaboration with Japanese groups. A highlight is the discovery of colossal negative expansion in doped-BiNiO3; this material shrinks dramatically when heated.
