We theoretically analyze the spectrum of a magnetic molecule when its charge and spin can couple to the molecular vibrations. More specifically, we show that the interplay between charge-vibron and spin-vibron coupling leads to a renormalization of the magnetic anisotropy parameters of the molecule. This effect is discussed for a model device consisting of an individual magnetic molecule embedded in a junction. We study the transport properties of the device and illustrate how the differential… Expand

Spin coupling and relaxation inside molecule-metal contacts.
It is shown that bonding of metal-organic complexes to a metallic substrate induces the formation of coupled metal-ligand spin states, increasing the spin degeneracy of the molecules and opening multiple spin relaxation channels. Expand

Using scanning tunneling spectroscopy, this work is able to depict a molecular scale picture of how electrons interact with the vibrational degrees of freedom of single molecules in different transport regimes, which helps in the development of stable molecular devices, which may also carry a switchable functionality.
