Chemical tailoring of Single Molecule Magnet behavior in films of Dy(III) dimers

Abstract : The insertion of Single Molecule Magnets (SMMs) in spintronic devices has drawn much attention thanks to their fascinating quantum and classical magnetic properties. Although many efforts have been done in this direction, we are still in search of optimal molecules, which preserve intact the magnetic bistability at the nanoscale. In this frame, we have synthesized a new dysprosium-based dimer characterized by SMM behavior and a double-butterfly-shape hysteresis. The complex has been successfully deposited by sublimation in high vacuum and the peculiar SMM behavior of the complex is fully retained at the nanoscale demonstrating that a modification of the dimer structure aimed for enhancing the SMM character is compatible with nanostructuration purposes.
