Molecular spintronics: a web themed issue
Showcasing a collection of cutting edge contributions by international leaders in the field of molecular spintronics.
The first decade of organic spintronics research
The significant milestones in organic spintronics achieved during the first decade of research are reviewed.
Iron(II) spin crossover films on Au(111): scanning probe microscopy and photoelectron spectroscopy
The growth of films of [H2B(pz)2]Fe(II)(bpy) on Au(111) is characterized from the bilayer film to multilayer film regime.
Coherent electron spin manipulation in a dilute oriented ensemble of molecular nanomagnets: pulsed EPR on doped single crystals
Pulsed EPR methods are used to carry out nutation experiments on a S = 3/2 molecular nanomagnet doped into a diamagnetic lattice.
Magnetism of TbPc2 SMMs on ferromagnetic electrodes used in organic spintronics
TbPc2 single-molecule magnets adopt different orientation on the two ferromagnetic electrodes used in organic spintronics without significant magnetic interactions.
Magnetic exchange coupling of a synthetic Co(II)-complex to a ferromagnetic Ni substrate
Ferromagnetic coupling of a synthetic porphyrin-related complex of Co(II) with C2v symmetry to a ferromagnetic Ni substrate is demonstrated.
Electronic communication through molecular bridges
Molecular orbitals are revealed when sets of molecular bridges show common trends in diradical exchange spin coupling and in conductance through molecular junctions.
Spin polarization in electrodeposited thin films of the molecule-based magnetic semiconductor Cr5.5(CN)12·11.5H2O
The magnetoresistance (MR) effect of thin films of the Prussian Blue Analogue (PBA) Cr5.5(CN)12·11.5H2O, prepared by electrochemical deposition, has been measured using the standard two-point probe method.
The evolution of spin distribution in the photoexcited triplet state of ethyne-elaborated porphyrins
Step-wise conjugation augmentation of a (porphinato)zinc chromophore drives a progressive oblate to prolate evolution of the T1-state spin distribution.
Modelling electric field control of the spin state in the mixed-valence polyoxometalate [GeV14O40]8−
Antiferromagnetic coupling induced by the application of an electric field predicted in a mixed-valence polyoxometalate that contains two extra electrons.
Can heterometallic 1-dimensional chains support current rectification?
The design of an effective molecular rectifier requires a consideration of the symmetry and distribution of the dominant transport channel.
Coherent manipulation of spin qubits based on polyoxometalates: the case of the single ion magnet [GdW30P5O110]14−
The coherence in a Gd3+ single ion magnet is increased by an order of magnitude, showing the potential of this system as a spin qubit in molecular spintronics.
Controlling the orientation of spin-correlated radical pairs by covalent linkage to nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide membranes
Photogenerated spin-correlated radical pairs adopt specific orientations when attached to nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide membranes. The orientations of the spin-polarized radical pairs can be determined using time-resolved EPR spectroscopy.
