X-ray and neutron scattering applied to:
studies of temperature-activated proton conduction mechanisms in phosphate based solid acids the relationship between the crystal structure and the physical properties of colossal-magneto-resistance (CMR) metal oxides
structure determination of new materials studies of polymorphism in organic/pharmaceutical compounds kinetic roughening during the growth of thin metal films on single-crystal surfaces.
 
Temperature-resolved dc-magnetization and ac-susceptibility applied to:
studies of magnetic relaxation of ensembles of magnetic nanoparticles studies of nanocomposite magnets.
