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.
