Mixed transition metal oxides form a wide group of inorganic materials which, due to their specific properties given by the electron configuration and the character of the valence electrons, find extensive use as materials for electronics, energy applications, chemical catalysis etc.
In our laboratory, we study the preparation of mixed oxides of transition metals and their properties. Our attention focuses in particular on high-temperature superconductors, layered cobalt oxides for high temperature thermoelectric conversion, manganate perovskites with colossal magnetoresistance, ZnO doped with magnetic impurities, niobates and tantalates for ferroelectric memories and optoelectronics or lanthanides-doped oxides for use in LEDs or scintillation technologies. Our aim is to find relationship between the chemical composition, structure and the resulting properties of these materials.
Our research is supported by grants from the Czech Academy of Sciences and RVO MEYS CZ funds.
