Prof. Piguet's research featured on the cover of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.

The recent article from the group of Prof. Piguet, professor in the inorganic chemistry department of the University of Geneva, made the cover of the first 2024 issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society. 

An active field of research 

Spin-crossover system focuses attention for their potential applications in magnetic storage, sensing, or design of quantum computers. Combining spin-crossover with luminescence would provide easier Q-bit detection with superior contrast and sensitivity and is an active goal of research molecular electronics. 

A step forward multifunctional spin-crossover devices

Prof. Piguet and his group made a significant leap forward in the field of luminescence spin-crossover. They implemented a tuned [FeN6] chromophore within a molecular triple-helical [EuFe(L)3]5+ complex and found that the system showcases the potential for the programmed room-temperature modulation of luminescence at the molecular level. 

Prof. Piguet commented “This finding opens new possibilities for multifunctional spin-crossover devices, overcoming current limitations associated with macroscopic or nanoscopic materials ».
