Article
Full-text available
Organometallic sandwich complexes are versatile molecular systems that have been recently employed for single-molecule manipulation and spin sensing experiments. Among related organometallic compounds, the mixed-sandwich S = 1/2 complex (η8-cyclooctatetraene)(η5-cyclopentadienyl)titanium, here [CpTi(cot)], has attracted interest as a spin qubit bec...
Article
Full-text available
Superconductors and magnetic materials, including molecules, are key ingredients for quantum computing and spintronics. However, only a little is known about how these materials interact in multilayer nanostructures like the hybrid architectures nowadays under development for such advanced applications. Here, we show that a single layer of magnetic...
Article
Full-text available
A thick film and a monolayer of tetrathiafulvalene-based Fe2+ spin-crossover complex have been deposited by solution on a Au (111) substrate, attempting both self-assembling monolayer protocol and a simpler drop-casting procedure. The thermally induced spin transition has been investigated using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray abso...

Full-text available
Superconductors and magnetic materials, including molecules, are key ingredients for quantum and advanced spintronic applications. However, only a little is known about how these materials are mutually influenced at their interface in hybrid architectures. Here, we show that a single layer of magnetic molecules, the Terbium(III) bis-phthalocyaninat...
Article
Full-text available
Thin inorganic films (i.e. metal oxides) are often used as decoupling layers to optimize the interaction between magnetic layers of molecules and metallic surfaces. For deposits of Single-Molecule Magnets (SMMs),...
Article
Full-text available
Gaining control over the grafting geometry is critically important for any application of surface‐supported single‐molecule magnets (SMMs) in data storage, spintronics, and quantum information science. Here, tetrairon(III) SMMs with a propeller‐like structure are functionalized with thioacetyl‐terminated alkyl chains to promote chemisorption on gol...
Article
A terbium(iii)-bis(phthalocyaninato) neutral complex was deposited on the rutile TiO2(110) surface, and their interaction was studied by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). It was found that the TiO2 rutile surface favours the adsorption of isolated molecules adopting a lying down configuration with the p...
Article
Full-text available
The structure and growth mechanism of TiO2 ultrathin films on Cu(001) were investigated by experimental and theoretical studies. Multiple experimental techniques, including photoemission spectroscopies and scanning probe microscopy, were used to carefully characterize the chemical, electronic, and morphological structure of the metal oxide layer. A...
Article
Full-text available
A strategy based on noncovalent interactions has been developed to deposit a sub-monolayer of enantiopure thia[4]helicene radical cations on a pre-functionalized Au(111) substrate. This approach results in both the paramagnetic character and the chirality of the molecules being retained at the nanoscale. Abstract In the past few years, the chirali...
Article
Full-text available
Chirality and magnetism of molecules are two properties that in the last years raised notable interest for the development of novel molecular devices. Chiral helicenes combine these functionalities, and their nanostructuration is the first step toward developing new multifunctional devices. Here, we present a novel assembling strategy to deposit a...
Article
Full-text available
Magnetic materials interfaced with superconductors may reveal new physical phenomena with potential for quantum technologies. The use of molecules as magnetic components has already shown great promise, but the diversity of properties offered by the molecular realm remains largely unexplored. Here we investigate a submonolayer of tetrairon(iii) pro...
