My PhD project focuses on the synthesis and structural characterisation of new functional materials which includes lattice dynamics, phase transitions and symmetry-relations. In particular, “Hybrid inorganic-organic perovskites” with the general formula ABX3, where the A- and/or X-site inorganic moieties of the conventional perovskites can be replaced by molecular organic building blocks, are of special interest. These class of materials exhibit intriguing properties due to their sensitive structural response towards external stimuli like temperature and/or pressure.
