Nanotube resonator coupled to the electron spin of a molecule

Electron spin resonance (ESR) measurements on single molecules

Group Association:

Description of Activities:

We are performing electron spin resonance (ESR) measurements on single molecules using nanotube resonators. The goal is to see whether nature can provide molecular electronic spins endowed with long dephasing time. For this, our aim is to measure molecular spins in a regime where the magnetic noise of the environment is reduced to an unprecedented level. In case of success, this work could open avenues in quantum science by allowing experiments not possible with the electronic spins of nitrogen-vacancy centres in diamond.
