Thin Film Quantum Materials

Group Leaders:


Our group is located in the Clarendon Laboratory (Physics Department, University of Oxford), as well as on the Harwell Oxford Science Campus where we can be found in the state-of-the-art Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH). The RCaH is conveniently located on the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) site, next door to the UK’s new third generation synchrotron radiation source Diamond. The RAL is also known for its unique pulsed neutron and muon source ISIS.
