“Synthesis of Au(Core)/Ag(Shell) Nanoparticles and their Conversion to AuAg Alloy Nanoparticles” Highlighted in Materials Today
Metal nanoparticles with tunable optical properties will serve as substrates for investigating coupling with and among optically- and magnetically-active ligands.

NanoDays 2012
The Center for Molecular Spintronics is pleased to support NanoDays 2012 on Friday, April 22nd. This special event features laboratory tours, presentations, and demonstrations for students, parents, science teachers and families. Join us in exploring the unique world of molecules and atoms that exists at the nanoscale. Find out how scientists are researching the magnetic properties of magnetic spin to develop new forms of computers that are more efficient and faster than ever!

Mission Statement

The Center for Molecular Spintronics seeks to reveal the fundamental principles underlying the optimal use of organic molecules for spin transport and manipulation through new synthesis, advanced characterization, and state-of-the-art modeling. These principles will drive the development of a new generation of low cost, low power, high performance spin-dependent device applications. The center is committed to pursuing these developments in close concert with industrial partners, science educators, and the general public to ensure wide-reaching impacts.
