Defect blueprint for advanced materials published in Nature Materials

A collaboration between Professor Aron Walsh (Imperial College London) and Professor Alex Zunger (University of Colorado Boulder) has been published in Nature Materials this week.

A collaboration between Professor Aron Walsh (Imperial College London) and Professor Alex Zunger (University of Colorado Boulder) has been published in Nature Materials this week. They define a set of design principles, based on theory of imperfections in crystalline solids, for optimising defects and doping in a broad range of compounds. These include the new generation of quantum materials such as topological insulators, Weyl conductors and high-Tc superconductors.
