Achieving switchable magnetism in framework materials
Scholarship Description
Magnetic materials composed of molecular units have great potential to address both technological needs such as high-density data storage and fundamental studies of magnetism.  Indeed, over the last 10-15 years, the study of magnetism has moved increasingly from the domain of strictly inorganic materials (e.g. simple halides or oxides of transition metals) to more exotic molecule-based systems promising ever greater control over both the magnetic exchange interactions and material properties.
The aim of this project is to deliver crystalline materials displaying host:guest modulation of the bulk magnetic properties.  We will focus on magnetic materials consisting of molecular units in polymeric coordination complexes, the only materials able to provide the dramatic flexibility and control of both the lattice topologies and magnetic dimensionalities that are required for this work.  Much of the sample characterisation work will be performed using the suite of neutron instruments available at the Bragg Institute, providing access to state of the art, world-leading instrumentation and techniques.
