The meeting explores synergies between materials based on artificial magnetic molecules and superconductivity. It aims at boosting discussions on diverse topics that include novel material design and preparation, as well as advances in the characterization of systems encompassing the smallest length and time scales, in resolving electronic as well as magnetic signals, in controlling the vector of the magnetic field, in precisely measuring interactions between magnetic bound states and Cooper pairs, in addressing collective magnetic excitations such as the Kondo effect and in observing and manipulating single molecular entities and measuring their properties. It also covers proposals of hybrid devices involving magnetic and superconducting materials and their application in diverse fields, including sensing, electronics, spintronics and quantum technologies.
MOLSPIN addresses the need to integrate molecule-based materials as well as single molecules into functional devices. Starting from isolated results in the field such as studies of electrical transport on individual molecules the Action aims at moving towards the next step by understanding spin-dependent phenomena when a molecular system is combined with another system and application of this understanding to design new devices. For the success of MOLSPIN, it is important to achieve a breakthrough in tailoring and manipulating the spin of molecular systems by using new experimental methods to engineer and read-out the spin at the smallest scale.
NANOCOHYBRI addresses the need to improve quantum coherent interactions with superconductors. Recent results show the potential of controlling superconductivity with spin systems, thanks to the development of techniques able to sense magnetic systems embedded in superconductors down to atomic scale. For the success of NANOCOHYBRI it is important to achieve a breakthrough in understanding quantum interactions between superconductors and magnetic systems by using state of the art materials and substrates that can be integrated with a superconductor into devices.
