Reports Summarize Materials Science Study Results from University of Hamburg (Spin-resolved imaging and spectroscopy of individual molecules with sub-molecular spatial resolution)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators publish new report on Materials Science. According to news reporting from Hamburg, Germany, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Organic materials are fascinating and promising candidates for nanoscale spintronic devices and may open viable routes toward quantum computing. Previous experiments on spin transport in organic devices, through break junctions or spin valves, unveiled exciting new frontiers of molecular magnetism."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Hamburg, "However, much more effort is needed to understand the properties of organic/magnetic interfaces at a microscopic level. In this article, we show how spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (SP-STM/STS) can provide unprecedented insights into organic/magnetic interfaces as an initial step toward favorably tailoring such interfaces in order to increase device effi ciency."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Based on the unique combination of spin-sensitivity, atomic-scale spatial resolution, and high-energy resolution, SP-STM/STS has proven to be an invaluable method for exploring spatial and bias dependences of spin-polarized currents through individual molecules as well as for revealing individual spinsplit molecular orbitals interacting with ferromagnetic substrates."
