SINGLE-MOLECULE MAGNETS EVOLVE

Transition-metal clusters are ideal systems to explore nanoscale magnetism and quantum effects
Department: Science & Technology

One of the most pressing technology needs today is to find more efficient ways to store and process digital information. There are a couple of possibilities: One is to squeeze more data onto storage devices by making currently used magnetic nanoparticles even smaller. Another is to develop fundamentally different ways to process information, such as quantum-based computing. For any of these potential applications, the use of chemistry to develop new materials will be critical. That's . . .
