Title: Tuning the (anti)ferromagnetic coupling of MPcs/Gr/FM spin interfaces

Host: Andrea Ferretti

Abstract: Paramagnetic metal organic molecules can open the route to engineer spintronic devices when their magnetic moments are stabilized against thermal fluctuations, e.g. by a controlled interaction with a magnetic substrate. We report on robust spin interfaces, exhibiting residual magnetic coupling up to room temperature (RT), with tunable (anti- or ferromagnetic) alignment. This is enabled by an optimized configuration of the magnetic support, a Gr substrate intercalated with ferromagnetic metals/alloys (Fe,Co,FeCo), and molecular units with suitable symmetry of the molecular orbitals carrying the magnetic moment. The (anti)ferromagnetic response of the spin interface is determined by a symmetry-selected superexchange path, actively mediated by the Gr sheet and the organic backbone of the MPc molecules (Ref.[1]).
Combined optimization both of the magnetic state of the substrate and of the super-exchange channel open an incredible playground for the nanomagnetism scientific community.
