Résumé :

This presentation will address a new field called molecular spintronics, which
combines the concepts of spintronics, molecular electronics and quantum computing
[1]. Various research groups are currently developing low-temperature
scanning tunnelling microscopes to manipulate spins in single molecules, while
others are working on molecular devices (such as molecular spin-transistors,
spin valves and filters, and carbon-nanotube-based devices [1]) to read and
manipulate the spin state and perform basic quantum operations. The talk
will discuss this - still largely unexplored - field and present our first results
[1].
