Experimentalist in solid state physics
Properties : Magnetic, transport and calorimetric measurements
Materials : Mainly oxides
Topics : All what is related to “exotic” behaviors, but I also take part in more applicative studies on so-called “functional” materials (when both aspects are present together, it is the best)

Old ones : Vortex pinning in high-Tc cupratesPhase separation in manganites.
Still active : Low-dimensional magnetismGeometrical frustrationDisorder effects.
Most recent : Magnetocaloric properties Field-induced transitionsValence and spin-state transitions.

Some curves illustrating the type of studies I do : “ScientificPatchwork
