Dr Larissa Huston

Position Research Officer
Research group
Office John Carver 4 23

Technical expertise

I have expertise in a variety of materials science techniques. These include:

  • Nanoindentation at high and low temperatures
  • Pressure application by Diamond Anvil Cells
  • Raman Microspectroscopy
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • Focused Ion Beam Milling
  • Basic Transmission Electron Microscopy

Research interests

I investigate the effects of size, temperature and unloading rate on the formation of pressure induced metastable phases of Si and Ge. To apply pressure, I utilise both diamond anvil cells and nanoindentation.
