Abstract

Subsequent to the similar [MnIII6CrIII]3+ single-molecule magnets (SMM), the recently studied [FeIII6CrIII]3+ structural type adsorbed thin films prepared on Si and gold-coated glass substrates have been experimentally studied by means of spin-polarized electron spectroscopy (SPES) and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) at the Fe L3,2 edge using circularly-polarized synchrotron radiation. The results are cross-compared to the corresponding data obtained from the recently published measurements with Mn-based SMM [1], also in terms of the local spin and orbital magnetic moments obtained. Furthermore, [FeIII6CrIII]3+ single crystals have been experimentally studied by means of magnetometry and X-ray diffraction. View Full-Text
