Project Description

This project aims to use an integrated experimental and theoretical approach to design, synthesise and investigate single-molecule magnets that can function at higher temperatures than have been achieved previously, to advance their application in quantum computing and molecular spintronics. Materials science
problems are increasingly benefiting from molecular approaches and lanthanoid-based single-molecule magnets can potentially play an important role in achieving otherwise inaccessible technological developments. Important advances in fundamental chemistry are anticipated and the insights that emerge from this research will ultimately benefit Australia's participation in related high-end technology industries.
