  • Characterisation of inorganic materials using solid-state NMR spectroscopy 

    Sneddon, Scott (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis
    This thesis uses solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and density functional theory (DFT) calculations to study local structure and disorder in inorganic materials. Initial work concerns microporous ...
  • Investigation of structure and disorder in inorganic solids using solid-state NMR 

    Mitchell, Martin R. (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    The use of solid-state NMR and DFT calculations to study Y₂Sn[subscript(x)]Ti[subscript(2-x)]O₇, Y₂Sn[subscript(x)]Zr[subscript(2-x)]O₇ and Y₂Ti[subscript(x)]Zr[subscript(2-x)]O₇, materials with applications for the safe ...
  • An ionothermally prepared S=1/2 vanadium oxyfluoride kagome lattice 

    Himeur, Farida Himeur; Aldous, David William; Goff, Richard John; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Attfield, J. Paul; Morris, Russell Edward; Lightfoot, Philip (2011-10) - Journal article
    Frustrated magnetic lattices offer the possibility of many exotic ground states that are of great fundamental importance. Of particular significance is the hunt for frustrated spin-1/2 networks as candidates for quantum ...
  • Low temperature magnetisation properties of the spin ice material Dy₂Ti₂O₇ 

    Slobinsky, Demian G. (University of St Andrews, 2012-06) - Thesis
    A way to obtain materials that show novel phenomena is to explore the interplay between geometry and interactions. When it is not geometrically possible to satisfy all the interactions by a given configuration, then to ...
