Molecular Magnetism

Our goal is to understand further the quantum aspects of magnetism in molecular magnets in a sense of their potential application as quantum bits (qubits) in quantum computers. We focus on two interesting issue: (a) the understanding of the driving mechanism for the reverse of magnetization in the crystal mediated by the magnetic avalanche and (b) the understanding of the exchange interactions causing magnetic order as a function of the charge state. These mechanisms are investigated with the SOT technique employing its advantages to tackle these questions.
