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.

  • Persistent three- and four-atom orbital molecules in the spinel AlV2O4 

    Attfield, J Paul
    Electronic instabilities in transition metal compounds may lead to ground states containing orbital molecules when direct metal-metal orbital interactions occur. The spinel AlV2O4 was reported to contain V717+ orbital ...
