Scientists Make First High-temperature Single-molecule Magnet[Oct 22, 2018]

An international team of scientists from Britain, China and Finland produced a new molecule-based magnetic information storage material, which might be used to produce high-density digital storage media and parts of microprocessors in quantum computers. The study published in the latest journal Science showed that they successfully designed and synthesized the first single-molecule magnet (SMM) with a blocking temperature above 77 K, the boiling point of liquid nitrogen, which is both cheap and readily available.
