Recipes for enhanced molecular cooling

Author affiliations


Molecular nanomagnets are considered valid candidates for magnetic refrigeration at low temperatures. Designing these materials for enhanced cooling requires the control and optimization of the quantum properties at the molecular level, in particular: spin ground state, magnetic anisotropy, and presence of low-lying excited spin states. Herein, we present the theoretical framework together with a critical review of recent results, and perspectives for future developments.
