Gate-Controlled Kondo Effect in a Single Molecule Transistor with Elliptical Ferromagnetic Leads

  • Hu T.
  • Scott G.

We present low temperature transport measurements of C60-based single molecule transistors fabricated using ferromagnetic break junction devices with planar elliptical leads, revealing a gate-modulated single channel spin-1/2 Kondo effect. The shape anisotropy and dipole interaction of the source and drain electrodes allows for the relative alignment of their respective magnetic moments to be switched between a parallel and an antiparallel configuration. Both the ferromagnetism of the electrodes and the manipulation of their magnetization are shown to impact the magnetotransport in the Kondo regime in a manner consistent with analytical results, but with a magnitude highly sensitive to the precise electrode-molecule geometry and the electrostatic environment.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

Digital networks at the nexus of productivity growth

  • Kamat S.

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
