The defect density of a material is central to its prop-erties. Here, we show, employing EXAFS measure-ments and MD simulation, how the Ba-Li anti-site defect density of perovskite-structured BaLiF3 nano-particles can be tuned. In particular, we show that ball milling reduces the defect content. Conversely, thermal annealing increases the defect density. The work represents a first step towards tailoring the properties of a material, via defect tuning post syn-thesis.
