Low-dimensional oxides

Internships and jobs




Founded in 2002, this team brings together experimentalists and theoreticians interested in the effects of dimension reduction in oxide materials. Thanks to a joint experience/theory collaboration, the group has developed over the past years a recognized expertise in the science of oxide surfaces (surfaces, thin films, nano-objects). Its activity is based on long-term collaborations with other universities, national and international teams, but also with research centers of large industrial groups (Saint-Gobain and ArcelorMittal). The team develops a limited number of perennial scientific themes: atomic and electronic structure, nature of defects, polarity, reactivity, adhesion, hydroxylation, dissolution/precipitation, metal/oxide interfaces. They are mainly focused on binary oxides in various forms (crystals, thin films, nanopowders), in environments ranging from ultra-high-vacuum to liquids or in contact with metals.
