R. Guinebretiere research activities concern material science in point of view of physic of condensed matter. More specifically he is mainly involved on the elaboration and microstructural characterization of nanostructured ceramic materials. Most of the studied materials are synthesized by the way of sol-gel process under various forms: powder, dispersed phases at the nanoscale in matrices or thin-film polycrystalline or epitaxial. The main focus of the research is devoted to the development of the quantitative analysis of the microstructure of these nanostructured materials mainly through X-ray diffraction. R. Guinebretiere interests include the design of high-resolution diffractometers prototypes for this type of study. Currently, it is especially to develop specific tools allowing the coupling of diffraction and scattering for studies of in-situ behavior of materials at temperature up to 1600°C. R. Guinebretière is vice-chair of the French Crystallographic Association (AFC), he is also co-chair of the Scientific Committee of the Conference Series "X Rays and Matter." And vice-chair of one of the Program Committee of the use of French synchrotron facilities (ESRF CRG Beamline and SOLEIL). Finally, he is the authors of one textbook on x-ray diffraction in polycrystalline materials, of 76 publications in international journals with referee, 15 invited talks in international congress and roughly one hundred other communications in international congresses.
