State-of-the-art instruments for measuring spectroscopic, thermodynamic, magnetic, and electrical transport properties of radioactive materials, together with specialised facilities for the preparation of high-quality samples, from single crystals to organometallic complexes and epitaxial thin films.  Available techniques include, among others, magic-angle-spinning nuclear magnetic resonance, photoemission and Mössbauer spectroscopy, SQUID magnetometry, Seebeck- and Hall-effect probes. By exploring materials properties in a wide range of temperature, pressure, and magnetic field, studies performed at the JRC are helping in bringing the actinide knowledge to a “material-by-design” level.
