Trans-spin nanoarchitectures: from birth to functionalities in magnetic field (TSuNAMI)

ERC Starting grant

2017 – 2022

The goal is to learn how different spin units – quantum or classical spins, and their analogues in reciprocal space, the pseudospins – coexist and communicate in magnetic matter. The project introduces a new concept of trans-spin hybrids via coupling of divergent spin entities in single units and their assemblies. The aim of the ‘spin crossbreeding’ is to get control over the spin states of one spin component via manipulation with the other spin component within a single trans-spin nanoarchitecture – a TSuNAMI. The TSuNAMIes aim to exploitation in novel concepts of synthesis and nanofabrication by using magneto-assembly in 2D and 3D, magnetic click chemistry and chemistry driven by phonon-magnon mixing.
