Masahiro Yamashita is the new guest of the Nano Open Webinars

Organized by Sabancı University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center (SUNUM), the Nano Open Webinars continue with a webinar entitled “Molecular Spin Qubits for Quantum Computer and High-Density Memory Devices Based on Molecular Magnets” that will be delivered by Prof. Masahiro Yamashita from Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Tohoku University, at 11:00 on Wednesday, May 3, 2023.

Nano Open Seminar 3 May

Spintronics, based on the freedoms of charge and spin of the electron, is a key technology in the 21st century. Magnetic random access memory (MRAM), which uses giant magnetoresistance (GMR), has several advantages compared with electronics. Although conventional magnets composed of transition metals are normally used, in their study, they use molecule-based nano-magnets and single-molecule magnets (SMMs) to overcome “Moore`s Limitation”. SMMs are also available for quantum computer. Prof. Yamashita will talk about the molecular spin qubits for quantum computer ([1]Crystal Engineering Method, [2]g-Tensor Engineering Method, [3]Orbital Engineering Method, and [4]Molecular Technology Method) as well as high-density memory devices such as single-molecule memory device, SMMs encapsulated into SWCNT, and metallic conducting SMMs with negative magnetoresistances.
