Introduction

Prof. Driscoll’s group work in the area of Advanced Oxide Thin Films for Energy Devices and Energy Efficient ICT. Oxides are of interest as they possess the whole range of materials functions, all the way from insulators to superconductors (with ferroelectrics, semiconductors, and magnetic materials, and a range of other functions in between). In the vast majority of cases, they are environmentally stable and benign.

What is Materials Science?

In case you are not sure what Materials Science is all about (in fact many people do not!), please see Professor Driscoll’s article in APL Materials (the journal of which she is Editor-in-Chief) on her definition of the rapidly evolving field of materials science.
