  • The research activity focuses on the study of the interactions between localised magnetic moments in dependence of their valence state and of their chemical and cristalline environment. Systems of interest are: a) molecular magnets of angular or linear shape (short term); b) extended 2D or 3D systems (long term). The research aims at clarifying: i) the possibility to control and manipulate magnetic states and spectra through chemical doping and structural deformations; ii)

    2 the valence electrons state (including its topological character) and the conditions for the onset of strong couplings between structural (e.g., chirality), magnetic and transport properties. The activity will be based on a precise mapping of the ab initio results from density functional theory on appropriate model (spin or electronic) Hamiltonians and on the exact diagonalization of

    the latters.
