Research in the Physics Department covers the field of condensed matter physics. The principal activities of the department are presented in this Progress Report covering the period from 1 January to 31 December 1990.
The condensed matter physics research is predominantly experimental utilising diffraction of neutrons and X-rays. The research topics range from studies of two- and threedimensional structures, magnetic ordering, heavy fermions, phase transitions in model systems to studies of texture and recrystallization kinetics and with a more applied nature. The discovery of the high Tc superconductors in 1986 has opened an important new research area, where neutron and X-ray diffraction are used to elucidate the basic mechanism responsible for the superconductivity and in the analysis of the solid stale syntheses used when producing the materials.
