Isolated nanometric objects of the nickel-iron cyanide-bridged coordination network are obtained by a sequential growth on "molecular seeds" anchored on Si(100) surfaces. Control of the density and the size of the nano-objects is achieved by imposing a growth process without side nucleation.
A challenge in molecular spintronics is to control the magnetic coupling between magnetic molecules and magnetic electrodes to build efficient devices. Here we show that the nature of the magnetic ion of anchored metal complexes highly impacts the exchange coupling of the molecules with magnetic substrates. Surface anchoring alters the magnetic anisotropy(More)
Tungsten carbide thin films have been prepared by reactive rf sputtering from a tungsten target in various Ar-CH(4) mixtures. The composition, structure, microstructure and chemical state of the films have been investigated by the complementary use of RBS, NRA, XRD, GIXRD, TEM and XPS analyses. These characteristics of the films were then correlated to(More)
Spin cross-over molecules show the unique ability to switch between two spin states when submitted to external stimuli such as temperature, light or voltage. If controlled at the molecular scale, such switches would be of great interest for the development of genuine molecular devices in spintronics, sensing and for nanomechanics. Unfortunately, up to now,(More)
Recently, the organisation of magnetic molecules on carbon nanotubes has raised much interest due to their possible interesting contribution to molecular spintronics. In this paper, we describe the assembly on SWNTs of a magnetic polyoxometalate encompassing a single cobalt ion (CoPOM) and its isostructural diamagnetic zinc analogue (ZnPOM). The simple(More)
Two new compounds based on O(3)PCH(2)PO(3)(4-) ligands and {Mo(V)(2)O(4)} dimeric units have been synthesized and structurally characterized. The dodecanuclear Mo(V) polyoxomolybdate species in (NH(4))(18)[(Mo(V)(2)O(4))(6)(OH)(6)(O(3)PCH(2)PO(3))(6)] x 33 H(2)O (1) is a cyclohexane-like ring in a chair conformation with pseudo S(6) symmetry. In the solid(More)
Controlling the elaboration of Coordination Networks (CoNet) on surfaces at the nanoscale remains a challenge. One suitable technique is the Sequential Growth in Solution (SGS), which has the advantage to be simple, cheap and fast. We addressed two issues in this article: i) the controlled synthesis of ultra thin films of CoNet (thickness lower than 10 nm),(More)
The aim of this work was to perform highly localized spectroscopic surface measurements by combining time-resolved laser spectroscopy and scanning near-field optical microscopy. The final purpose of that was to study surface sorption at the molecular level of trivalent ions in the framework of nuclear waste disposal assessment. Time-resolved laser(More)
