Michael Steinitz's research areas are in neutron scattering and dilatometry, as applied to magnetic structures of rare-earth and transition metals, especially incommensurate and density-wave structures. He has developed dilatometricmethods for use at cryogenic and very high temperatures. Together with Jan Genossar of the Technion, he developed the tilted-plate capacitance displacement sensor, which allows angstrom resolution at temperatures exceeding 1000 C. Since Autumn of 2006 he has been the editor of the Canadian Journal of Physics.
