Research Interests

More details are available on the  website of the Mark Murrie group.

Current magnetic materials are made using a 'top-down' approach. However, these magnetic grains cannot continue to decrease in size indefinitely and new magnetic materials must be developed. If the bit size is to decrease further towards a few nanometres, we move into the realm of magnetic molecules and the possibility of information storage and processing at the molecular level. Our research involves the synthesis and characterisation of new molecular magnetic and nanomagnetic materials, with an ever-growing list of potential applications.
