Quantum Chemical Design of Molecular Magnets

Project description

Better molecular magnets can power future devices

Quantum devices depend on a new class of molecule-based magnets. But unlike conventional magnets, their complex quantum mechanical structure is poorly understood. The EU-funded ezEmbedMagnet project will seek to better understand systems of large magnetic molecules and use the resulting knowledge to create new molecular magnets. To do this, the project will employ computational modelling to determine how microscopic interactions (spin-orbit and Zeeman) contribute to macroscopic magnetic properties. Specifically, the project will look at optimising a cobalt(II) single-molecule magnet as well as single cobalt atoms on MgO(001) and Cu(111) surfaces.
