Research Lines

Our group aims to a three-fold target. On one hand, we continue working in the framework of the synthesis under high pressures of novel metal oxides with electronic or magnetic properties, in which we believe to have contributed with a substantial work.

On the second hand, we are also interested in certain families of metal oxides, also involving mixed valence of the transition metals and good electronic conductivity, which can be successfully used as electrodes (cathodes or anodes) in solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFC).

On the third term, we aim to continue with a recently-opened research line concerning the preparation and study of new metal hydrides, with interest in the field of hydrogen storage by reaction, under pressure, of simple hydrides; we have recently obtained promising results in this direction.
