Molecular Chips

MolChip investigates the fundamental properties of Molecular Magnets likewise their potential application in Quantum Information Processing and Magnetic Refrigeration. The key strength of MolChip is the integration of multiple disciplines:

  synthesis and processing of molecular materials (bottom-up), 
  design and fabrication of sensors and experimental tools adapted to the nanoscale (top-down), 
  use of sophisticated techniques for physical detection. 

The activities are coordinated through a National Project (MAT2012-38318-C03) funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness logo Ministerio 
 
MolChip groups physicists and chemists belonging to the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragón and Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón, both located in Zaragoza, and is officially recognized as a "Consolidated Group" by the Government of Aragón logo DGA
