Research


Our main interest is the design of materials using anion substitution by hydride, and the synthesis and properties of rare earth doped solid state materials.

Optical and vibrational spectroscopy, especially photoluminescence spectroscopy, are used in order to gain a better understanding of the materials‘ properties. Rare earth ions serve as very sensitive probes for the local environment.

Different preparation methods, such as solid state reactions or reactions under gas pressure are applied. For structural characterization, we take advantage of combined X-ray and neutron diffraction studies.
