Attfield Research Group
The research group led by Professor J Paul Attfield is based at the Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions (CSEC). Research interests include:
- Synthesis, structural studies, and property measurements for electronic materials such as transition metal oxides;
- High pressure-high temperature synthesis;
- Use of 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, used to explore (super)conducting and magnetic properties.
