Title Oxyhydrides – Synthesis, Crystal Structure and Properties
Abstract This thesis is submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Philosophiae Doctor at the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Oslo (UiO). The experimental work presented has been carried out at the research group for Nanostructures and Functional Materials (NAFUMA) at UiO, ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source, the Swiss-Norwegian beamlines (SNBL) at ESRF, and the CRISMAT laboratory in Caen, between August 2014 and December 2018 as a part of the strategic research initiative FOXHOUND. Professor Dr. Anja Olafsen Sjåstad and Associate Professor Dr. Anette Gunnæs have supervised the work and first I would like to express my sincere gratitude to them. A special thanks to Anja for always encouraging me and my ideas, and her endless support. Thanks to my co-authors, Wojtek, Jeff, Vajeeston, Kristin, Vegar and Magnus. A special thanks to Kristin for her master work, which is included in Paper II. I would like to thank Matthew Krzystyniak for carrying out NCS measurement and analysis, and Wojtek for carrying out neutron PDF analysis. Thanks to Magnus at IFE for carrying out neutron diffraction experiments, the staff at ISIS pules neutron and muon source and SNBL at ESRF for experimental support, and David Wragg for discussions and assistance with diffraction experiments at the home laboratory. Thanks to Erik and Nicolai for joining beamtimes at ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source. I would like to thank Felix Fernando-Alonso for fruitful discussions and for putting me in contact with Jeff, and a most sincere gratitude is directed towards Jeff for our collaboration and the beamtimes at ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source. This thesis would not have been the same without your interest and efforts. Large thanks also to Philippe Boullay, Bruno Gonano, Yohann Breard and the other guys in Caen for showing great hospitality and cycling enthusiasm, in addition to our attempts with PEDT. Great colleagues and friends have been valuable the last years, and I would like to thank Asbjørn, Henrik, Ina, Ingvild, Jon Einar, Kristian, Magnus and the rest of the NAFUMA staff. A special thanks to Amund for being a great office-mate and cycling companion. At last, I would like to thank Ingrid Marie, my parents, the rest of my family and friends for support during the last years.
