CA2DM paper featured in cover and editor's choice of Physical Review Letters

A recent paper by Prof. Antonio Castro Neto and collaborators was featured in the cover of the March 27th edition of Physical Review Letters.

The paper demonstrated for the first time the site-dependent g factor of a single magnetic molecule, with intramolecular resolution, using low-temperature, high-magnetic-field scanning tunneling microscopy of dehydrogenated Mn-phthalocyanine molecules on Au(111).

This was achieved by exploring the magnetic-field dependence of the extended Kondo effect at different atomic sites of the molecule. Importantly, an inhomogeneous distribution of the g factor inside a single molecule is revealed.

The results open up a new route to access local spin properties within a single molecule.
