Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake

Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of “magic” shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to “spin” easier in one direction. Triangulene […]

Magnetism of topological boundary states induced by boron substitution in graphene nanoribbons

We released a preprint on “Magnetism of topological boundary states induced by boron substitution in graphene nanoribbons” to Arxiv. The article shows the promising perspective of incorporating spin polarization in the conjugated electron system of graphene nanoribbons. Using automatically precise engineering topological defects it is shown that magnetism can also be induced away from physical […]

Postdoctoral position on spin physics in graphene-based nanostructures at DIPC, Donostia-San Sebastián

Graphene and related materials have emerged as an ideal solution to combine spin localization and diffusion. These atomically thin materials can be fabricated with atomic precision, opening the door to fabrication of designer structures with precise shape, composition, spin arrangement, and interconnected by graphene electrodes for electrostatic or quantum gates. https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/484469 In the framework of […]
