Professor Paul Attfield FRS
Chair, Materials Science at Extreme Conditions, Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions and School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh
Paul Attfield has made distinctive contributions to the experimental understanding of structure in the solid-state, in particular pioneering the use of resonant X-ray scattering to study cation and valence ordering effects and characterizing charge-order in strongly correlated systems such as magnetite. He introduced the cation-size variance as a concept to rationalize and predict disorder effects, with a substantial impact on the study and preparation of technologically important materials. He has synthesized and characterized new materials with novel electronic properties, including high-Tc superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, and negative thermal expansion, including new developments in high pressure synthesis.
