Molecular spins for quantum information technologies

Author affiliations


Technological challenges for quantum information technologies lead us to consider aspects of molecular magnetism in a radically new perspective. The design of new derivatives and recent experimental results on molecular nanomagnets are covered in this tutorial review through the keyhole of basic concepts of quantum information, such as the control of decoherence and entanglement at the (supra-)molecular level.
