Vanadyl dithiolate single molecule transistors: the next spintronic frontier?

Author affiliations

Abstract

On the road towards quantum devices, chemistry can offer elementary pieces with a built-in function, like [TbPc2] which functions as a molecular transistor for nuclear spin detection. We argue that a large class of molecules have similar potential. In particular, we review the recent progress regarding highly coherent spin qubits based on vanadium dithiolate complexes. We propose their use as single molecule transistors to read and control a triple nuclear spin qubit, which could enable a low-current nuclear spin detection scheme by means of a spin valve effect.
