PhD project: Synthesis of novel materials at extreme conditions

Project description

Extreme conditions of pressure and temperature can be used as route to produce materials with unique properties otherwise unachievable. In this sense, pressure could be considered as green chemistry. In this project, you will use diamond anvil cells combined with the laser heating, optical spectroscopy (CSEC), electrical measurements (CSEC)  and x-ray diffraction (ESRF, France; Diamond, UK) to synthesise and characterise novel materials.
