(Static) improvement of 2D magnetism
WP1 aims to improve the physico-chemical properties of LMMs through chemical functionalization. The use of molecular dopants is expected to increase the TC of LMMs, resulting in a larger hysteresis at a given temperature as compared to a non-functionalized LMMs. Another anticipated effect is a change in the magnetic anisotropy (not shown here). The use of densely packed molecular layers will protect the LMM from degradation in air.
The goals are:
- Achieving air stability by molecular passivation.
- Increasing magnetic transition temperature via doping.
