Using low temperature magnetoresistance measurements, the possibility to selectively move a domain wall locally by applying current pulses through a Au nanowire adjacent to a permalloy element is studied. We find that the domain wall depinning field is drastically modified with increasing current density due to the Joule heating and the Oersted field of the(More)
Realization of graphene moiré superstructures on the surface of 4d and 5d transition metals offers templates with periodically modulated electron density, which is responsible for a number of fascinating effects, including the formation of quantum dots and the site selective adsorption of organic molecules or metal clusters on graphene. Here, applying the(More)
We observe ultraviolet photoluminescence from sputtered ZnO quantum dots which are fabricated with no annealing steps. The nanocrystals are embedded in amorphous SiO2 and exhibit a narrow size distribution of 3.5 ± 0.6 nm. Photoluminescence and transmittance measurements show a shift of ultraviolet emission and absorption of the dots compared to bulk ZnO(More)
Properties of the manganese-based single-molecule magnet [Mn(6)(III)Cr(III)](3+) are studied. It contains six Mn(III) ions arranged in two bowl-shaped trinuclear triplesalen building blocks linked by a hexacyanochromate and exhibits a large spin ground state of S(t) = 21/2. The dominant structures in the electron emission spectra of [Mn(6)(III)Cr(III)](3+)(More)
We use in situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to investigate intercalation of the ferromagnetic 3d metals Ni and Fe underneath a graphene monolayer on Rh(111). Upon thermal annealing of graphene/Rh(111) with the deposited metal on top, we observe the formation of epitaxial monatomic nanoislands grown pseudomorphically on Rh(111) and covered by(More)
Different approaches to the deposition of Mn(12) single molecule magnets on the Au(111) surface and their characterization by a broad variety of techniques are investigated with respect to their suitability for a profound corroboration of the integrity of the Mn(12) core. In this context, the most recent improvements in the experimental approaches are(More)
A new approach to the deposition of Mn12 single-molecule magnet monolayers on the functionalized Au(111) surface optimized for the investigation by means of scanning tunneling spectroscopy was developed. To demonstrate this method, the new Mn12 complex [Mn12O12(O2CC6H4F)16(EtOH)4].4.4CHCl3 was synthesized and characterized. In MALDI-TOF mass spectra the(More)
We report on low-temperature scanning tunneling spectroscopy measurements on epitaxial graphene flakes on Au(111). We show that using quasiparticle interference (QPI) mapping, we can discriminate between the electronic systems of graphene and Au(111). Beyond the scattering vectors, which can be ascribed to the elastic scattering within each of the systems,(More)
Nanosecond pulsed two-beam laser interference is used to generate two-dimensional temperature patterns on a magnetic thin film sample. We show that the original domain structure of a [Co/Pd] multilayer thin film changes drastically upon exceeding the Curie temperature by thermal demagnetization. At even higher temperatures the multilayer system is(More)
