Nanomagnetism en route from molecules to materials

TYPEComputational science seminar
Speaker:Grzegorz Kamieniarz
Affiliation:Computational Physics Group in the Poznan, University (Poland).
Organizer:Joan Adler
Time:10:30 - 12:00
Location:Lidow 620


Some aspects of magnetism and magnetic materials are described and their importance in science, medicine and technology is indicated. Molecular nanomagnets in the form of polynuclear clusters and zigzag chains as well as their unique characteristics are discussed, using the accurate computer simulation results based on the quantum spin models. Some known and well understood phenomena are reviewed, emphasizing their possible applications and focusing on state-of-the-art investigations in the field of quantum information processing, addressing individual molecules and quantum modelling.
