Magneto-optics of single-molecule magnets with optical nanoantennas

Francesco Pineider

University of Pisa

Francesco Pineider recieved his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Florence presenting a thesis on the self-assembly of molecular nanomagnets on surfaces and their characterization with scanning probe microscopy and synchrotron radiation-based spectroscopies. During his pos-doc years he worked at the University of Florence and the University of Padova studying magneto-plasmonics, with a special interest in to magneto-optical spectroscopy. He is currently employed as a fixed term researcher at the University of Pisa, where he is building up his research group on synthesis and characterization of molecular and magnetoplasmonic materials.


Introduction Magnetoplasmonics, the interaction of surface plasmons with magnetism, can provide exciting prospects in non-reciprocal nanophotonics, optically-controlled nanomagnetism and highly-efficient chemical... [ view full abstract ]
