Nanosystems and devices

The prerequisite for the development of a technology based on magnetic molecules and magnetic nanoparticles is the successful organization at the nanoscale allowing to maintain the richness of the magnetic and electronic properties of the chemically designed and tailored objects. UHV depositions and wet chemistry based protocols are used to assemble molecular and inorganic nanosystems controlling their interactions.

The integration of these objects in hybrid architectures that can be addressed using specific mesoscopic probes is the following step forward that can promote the realization of application in several fields ranging from molecular spintronics, quantum computing, magneto-plasmonics and photovoltaics.
