Nanospintronics and Molecular Transport - NanoSpin

The realization of an operational quantum computer is one of the most ambitious technological goals of today’s scientists. In this regard, the basic building block is generally composed of a two-level quantum system, namely a quantum bit (or qubit). Such quantum system must be fully controllable and measurable, which requires a connection to the macroscopic world. Recent discoveries show that molecules can exhibit large magnetic moment with a stable orientation like traditional magnets. They have therefore been called single-molecule magnets and they might push further the limitation for information storage and processing. They not only exhibit the classical macroscale property of a magnet, but also fascinating quantum properties such as quantum tunneling of the magnetization or quantum phase interference, which are advantageous for some challenging applications.

In order to explore these outstanding possibilities, the aim of the group is to develop state of the art experimental set-ups, as well as new methods and strategies in order to perform the read-out and quantum manipulation of individual magnetic moments, together with our colleagues, physicists, chemists, and outstanding engineers and technicians in the close environment of the team.

The visionary concept of our research projects is underpinned by worldwide research on molecular magnetism and supramolecular chemistry, our long experience in molecular magnetism, our membership in several research projects. The experimental team is composed of scientists with complementary expertises in molecular magnetism, nanomagnetism, quantum transport, cryogeny, nanofabrication, RF techniques and programming.
