  • Emergent states in transition metal oxides 

    Gibbs, Alexandra S. (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    Transition metal oxides adopt a wide variety of crystal structures and display a diverse range of physical phenomena from Mott insulating states to electron-nematics to unconventional superconductivity. Detailed understanding ...
  • Novel lithium-ion host materials for electrode applications 

    Lyness, Christopher (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
    Two novel lithium host materials were investigated using structural and electrochemical analysis; the cathode material Li₂CoSiO₄ and the LiMO₂ class of anodes (where M is a transition metal ion). Li₂CoSiO₄ materials were ...
