Advanced Structural and Functional Crystallography

The Advanced Structural and Functional Characterization Research Unit is formed by two Research Groups: the Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxides and Surfaces (CMEOS) group, and the Crystallography group.Both groups have in common the use of crystallography methods to study the structure and properties of complex and functional materials, such as complex oxides. The groups use X-ray diffraction and other techniques such as diffraction synchrotron techniques or surface characterization to study this type of materials.
