Multifunctional molecular magnets


Multifunctional molecular magnets

Development of multifunctional molecular magnets where magnetic properties are combined to optical or dielectric properties are at the heart of this research theme. A particular interest is devoted to compound exhibiting magneto-optical or magneto-electric properties (multiferroicity).

An illustration of this is polarized emission observed for a chiral Dy(III) complex when this SMM is in a slow relaxation regime of its magnetization (Illustration).[1]

Illustration: Circular polarized luminescence and molecular magnet behaviour in a chiral Dy based-complexe.
