Clarkson University: Ultrahigh-Density Data Storage and Quantum Computing. Researchers at Clarkson University, New York, have collaborated with researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Texas A&M University, and Northwestern University in pioneering nanostructuration of single molecule magnets.
“Practical applications involving the magnetic bistability of single-molecule magnets for next-generation computer technologies require nanostructuring, organization, and protection of the nanoscale materials in two- or three-dimensional networks to enable read-and-write processes.”
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), due to their defined and tunable porosity, have been proposed as hosts to facilitate these efforts. Their studies have the potential to be applied toward spintronic applications such as ultrahigh-density data storage and quantum computing.
