The oxidation states and local structure of clathrates

Information of the atomic arrangement in thermoelectric materials is key to understanding their properties and being able to improve these in a rational and scientific manner. Using synchrotron radiation we have studied the oxidation states and local structures in a series of germanium or silicon based clathrate structures, which has aided in developing the knowledge on the structure of these intriguing and promising compounds.
