Functional Organic Molecules for Spintronics

Our team (from left to right - top): Lenka, Leoš, Asger, Josh, Paula, Annika, Michal, (bottom): Daniel with Emma, the group mascot, Pauline, Patrícia, Vivien.


Our group develops functional materials based on organic molecules that contain one or more unpaired electrons for applications in spin electronics or simply ‘spintronics’. The research in our group lies at the interface between organic synthesis, materials science, and supramolecular chemistry and revolves around spin-delocalized open-shell systems. Our biggest excitement is to design and make molecules, where new functionality arises from the presence of unpaired electrons. Our aim is to learn how to introduce and control multiple functionalities in a bulk material or a device made of these molecules, by manipulating spin interactions between the unpaired electrons.
