Crystal structures

My research is focussed on understanding how the properties of materials, including minerals, are determined by their crystal structures. The sub-pages in this section can be selected from the menu on the left. In them you can find movies and text that summarise some of our current ideas about the relationship between crystal structures and properties.

CIFs (Crystallographic Information Files) containing refined structures are in the Structure archive page.

This section will always be "under construction" as our research and understanding of mineral structures progresses!
