Research interests:

Interaction of neutrons and x-rays with condensed matter. The crystalline and magnetic states of materials. Application†of group theory in phase transitions and in the classification of the crystalline and magnetic structures. Crystal structure of high temperature superconducting cuprates and its relation to their superconducting properties.

Research project:

Crystal structures of the high-Tc superconducting copper-oxides; Science and Technology Center for Superconductivity - National Science Foundation, Material Science Division - Argonne National Laboratory.
