Abstract: Z6.00006 : Carbon based devices for molecular quantum spintronics*
12:15 PM–12:51 PM
(Institut Neel, CNRS, Grenoble)
This presentation will address a new field called molecular quantum spintronics, which combines the concepts of spintronics, molecular electronics and quantum computing . Various research groups are currently developing low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopes to manipulate spins in single molecules, while others are working on molecular devices (such as molecular spin-transistors, spin valves and filters, and carbon-nanotube-based devices ) to read and manipulate the spin state and perform basic quantum operations. The talk will discuss the read-out of the spin states of single-molecule magnets using carbon based devises. In particular, carbon nanotube devices  and graphene nano-constrictions  will be discussed.\\[4pt]  L. Bogani \& W.
