Current research

  • Topotatic oxygen diffusion pathways in non-stoichiometric oxides at low temperature :
  • better fundamental understanding for low temperature oxygen diffusion mechanisms (SOFC, catalysis)
  • strong correlations via oxygen doping between structure/electronic properties/lattice dynamics

SrFeO3-x: an oxygen sponge explored by in situ single Crystal synchrotron diffraction (ESRF) (correspond to the first article in the list of selected publication)
