Center for Molecular Spintronics

Concluded in December, 2012

The Center for Molecular Spintronics sought 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 drove the development of a new generation of low cost, low power, high performance spin-dependent device applications. The center was committed to pursuing these developments in close concert with industrial partners, science educators, and the general public to ensure wide-reaching impacts.
