Single-molecule spintronics investigates electron transport through magnetic molecules that have an internal spin degree of freedom. To understand and control these individual molecules it is important to read their spin state. For unpaired spins, the Kondo effect has been observed as a low-temperature anomaly at small voltages. Here, we show that a coupled spin pair in a single magnetic molecule can be detected and that a bias voltage can be used to switch between two states of the molecule… CONTINUE READING
