Video of the EU project COSMICS shows the research about "spintronics"

Feb 05, 2021

The international research project COSMICS "Concepts and Tools in Molecular Spintronics" is investigating how magnetic molecules can be used, for example, to develop new types of microelectronic components. Next to the working group "Scanning Tunneling Microscopy" of Professor Richard Berndt from Kiel University, five other European partners are involved in the consortium, including universities and research institutions from France, Spain and Denmark. Together with a Danish software company, scientists from physics, theoretical physics and chemistry want to develop a programme to predict the properties of such components. It will be used for both scientific and industrial research. The project will be funded by the European Union from 2017 till 2022 within the framework of the Horizon 2020 research programme with around 3.8 million euros. In their new video, the partners present the "COSMICS" project and the research field of molecular spintronics. It combines molecular electronics, in which molecules serve as components of electronic devices, and spintronics, which uses the electrical and magnetic properties of electrons to process and store information.
