"More than Moore" - Switchable Surfaces and Spintronics

Development of Heteropolyvanadate Spin Clusters as Candidates for Future Redox-Based Memory Devices


Molecular electronics is attracting a lot of attention as a means of enabling continued reductions in feature size in data storage and processing devices. Dr. Kirill Monakhov from Leibniz Institute of Surface Engineering (IOM) and his colleagues from JARA-FIT, Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University synthesise stimuli-responsive molecules, characterise them, and apply them on substrate surfaces, work which could open up new possibilities in highly sought after "More than Moore" information technology.

For more information please read the interview "More than Moore" the interface between synthetic inorganic chemistry and condensed matter physics" of Dr. Kirill Monakhov to EU Research Magazine, Summer 2019 Edition, Blazon Publishing and Media Ltd, p. 19.
