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.
