Active spin-crossover/graphene interfaces for bistable electronic devices – 2DSwitch

Submission summary

The 2DSwitch project address the synthesis, characterization and basic understanding of a new family of active hybrid interfaces combining a 2D graphene(Gr) sensing layer in contact with an ultrathin film of switchable spin-crossover (SCO) sublimated molecules. Our main goal is to demonstrate bistable SCO/Gr hybrid devices, that can be addressed by multiple stimuli (light, electric field, strain, temperature) and operate at room temperature. The project is pluridisciplinary with close collaborations between inorganic chemists for the design and synthesis of new sublimable SCO molecules, surface physicists for the structural and magnetic characterization of SCO ultrathin films on Gr down to the molecular scale, and device physicists for the realization and operation of SCO/Gr based sensors (strain, light, temperature).
