A single-ion quantum magnet with characteristics surpassing all previous quantum magnets reported to date (published in PRL 2018). Del Barco’s group and collaborators in Germany have reported an outstanding analogy between the magnetism of “single Fe-atoms” embedded in solid state matrix (Li3N) and conventional molecular magnets.
An international research team, which includes University of Central Florida Professor Enrique del Barco and Christian A. Nijhuis of the National University of Singapore, has found a way to understand and manipulate the transition of charges in molecular junctions. The results have been published in Nature Nanotechnology.
Del Barco and collaborators at University of Limerick (Ireland) and the National University of Singapore have cracked an important limitation that for nearly 20 years has prevented the practical use of molecular diodes. The results have been published and highlighted in the News & Views of Nature Nanotechnology.
The Department of Physics at UCF and the Graduate Society of Physics Students (GSPS), with the support of the Outreach Program of the GMAG group at the American Physical Society, present “Physics Youth Scholastic and Instructing Camp for Orlando Scientists” (PhYSICOS), a no-cost summer camp for high school students in the Orlando metropolitan area.
We have reported a detailed charge transport study of an individual redox-active molecule (based on ferrocene) over a wide range of temperatures and applied potentials. The results show the temperature dependence of the current to vary strongly as a function of the gate voltage.
Parker Coye, a high school senior collaborating in our group has won First Place in Physics at the Florida State Science Fair in 2016! The highest recognition a k-12 student receives in Physics at the state level in Florida.
Congratulations, Tyler (our UG collaborator) for this outstanding award!! The Town and Gown scholarship was established at UCF in 1989 by the “Town and Gown Council”. The scholarship is awarded to deserving, non-traditional students. This year, 2015-2016, three awards have been distributed amongst the UCF student body. Town and Gown serves to strengthen the relationships […]
We report measurements of spin pumping and the inverse spin Hall effect in Permalloy/Uranium bilayers in order to study the efficiency of spin-charge interconversion in a super-heavy element (recently published in Applied Physics Letters)
