Professor, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Environmental Inorganic Chemistry
(Study director for the Materials research school at KB)

The design and synthesis of complex metal oxides and to understand structure-property relationships is central within my research.
Structural information is mainly obtained from scattering methods, in-situ neutron diffraction being the most important tool. We study for example fuel cell and battery materials under real working conditions with this technique. Sten Eriksson have a strong interest in oxide ion and proton conducting materials but also in magnetism and in materials showing a coupling between magnetic and electric properties, so called magnetoelectric materials. The development of neutron instrumentation and sample environment cells in collaboration with the neutron spallation source ISIS, UK, is also an important part of his work. Presently Sten Eriksson is main supervisor for two PhD studets.
