Project Description

For the last few decades the fabrication of small electronic devices has been focused on miniaturisation and
speed improvement - these technologies have largely been based on the successive downward scaling of
silicon matter, i.e. the top-down approach. However, as the nanoscale region is reached their fabrication
becomes more difficult and expensive. In this regard, molecular-based devices offer an alternative strategy,
i.e. the bottom-up approach, to achieving nano-scale technology. Our aims are to prepare a family of
molecular-based polymers with advanced magnetic switching capability and then to miniaturise them by
exploiting nanoparticle technology.
