The spin dynamics of Tb(OETAP)(2) single ion magnets was investigated by means of muon spin relaxation (mu SR) both in the bulk material as well as when the molecule is embedded into PEDOT:PSS polymer conductor. The spin fluctuation time is characterized by a high temperature activated trend, with an energy barrier around 320 K, and by a low temperature tunneling regime. When the single ion magnet is embedded into the polymer the energy barrier only slightly decreases and the fluctuation time remains of the same order of magnitude, even at low temperature. This finding shows that these single molecule magnets preserve their characteristics which, if combined with those of the conducting polymer, result in a hybrid material of potential interest for organic spintronics.

Abstract

The spin dynamics of Tb(OETAP)(2) single ion magnets was investigated by means of muon spin relaxation (mu SR) both in the bulk material as well as when the molecule is embedded into PEDOT:PSS polymer conductor. The spin fluctuation time is characterized by a high temperature activated trend, with an energy barrier around 320 K, and by a low temperature tunneling regime. When the single ion magnet is embedded into the polymer the energy barrier only slightly decreases and the fluctuation time remains of the same order of magnitude, even at low temperature. This finding shows that these single molecule magnets preserve their characteristics which, if combined with those of the conducting polymer, result in a hybrid material of potential interest for organic spintronics.
