Hiding in the bulk: the local structure origin of materials properties


Dr Giuditta Perversi, Maastricht University, NL


Several interesting materials with high technological applicability are associated with phase transitions, in a remarkable example of structure-to-property relationship. The resulting behaviours are often regarded and applied as a bulk property of the material, but a more thorough crystallographic investigation with X-rays and Neutron diffraction often give insights of more complex structural interactions concealed under the average signal. This concept will be explored in some transition metal oxides presenting metal-to-insulator transitions or the onset of oxygen conductivity, with all the many challenges associated with it.
