Solid State Chemistry

Solid-state chemistry is what fundamentally underpins the research group. Our focus is on materials chemistry which is the synthesis and study of the structure (both crystallographic and electronic) and functional properties of solid phase materials. The group mainly focuses on oxide materials – as they are an incredibly broad class of materials that encompass superconductivity to insulating properties, as well as combining transparency and conductivity and catalytic functions to name but a few. Recently we have been adopting machine learning approaches to design, predict, synthesise and characterise new (previously undiscovered) oxide materials.
