Strongly correlated electron systems present a large number of electronic phase transitions in intermediate mixed valence oxides, spin ladders or molecular conductors. Despite slight differences in crystalline structures, common features are observed that is Mott insulator-metal transition or the competition of superconductivity with other ground states.

The activity of the group is devoted to the study of the various instabilities in these compounds as a function of the applied hydrostatic pressure using various experimental facilities.
