Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxides and Surfaces

RESEARCH GROUPS

Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxides and Surfaces

WEB

In the Magnetic Material and Functional Oxides department at ICMAB, the activities of the Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxides and Surfaces group are addressed to explore, understand and develop new strongly correlated materials of interest in fundamental Condensed Matter research and as novel materials for the Information technologies.

The activities of the group are based on the application of chemical and magnetic crystallography methods to the investigation of emergent functional oxides. Combining an intensive use of Large Scale Facilities (such as neutron and synchrotron sources) with symmetry analysis methodologies, we investigate the symmetry-properties relationship associated to structural, magnetic or electronic orders in functional oxides.

Current research lines include the study of structure-properties relationship in new magnetic, multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials with special charge, spin or electronic orders, and the study of novel oxides with giant responses for technological applications. In addition to bulk materials and films, surface diffraction synchrotron techniques and surface characterization methods are also applied to the study of ordering related phenomena in low-dim systems.

  • Diffraction studies and crystallography of magnetic and electronic materials

    The neutron scattering in the field of magnetic and electronic materials presents extraordinary importance. To probe magnetic  properties on atomic scale, neutron diffraction is an established technique and a unique method of choice, which allows perfect quantitative data interpretation. The magnetic moment of the neutron makes it a unique probe for magnetic properties in  condensed matter on atomic scale. It gives a direct access to the spin and orbital distribution in the unit cell. In particular, magnetic structure determination is the foyer to the understanding of many fundamental phenomena in Condensed Matter research.  Neutron and synchrotron techniques can be applied to investigate spin-state transitions, charge and orbital ordering, giant magneto-resistance, magnetoelectric materials as well as other emergent phenomena in frustrated materials such as spin ice, spin liquid behavior or other promising topological defects. 

  • New multiferroics and magnetoelectric oxides and mechanisms

    Multiferroics are important functional materials featuring strongly coupled order parameters that can be manipulated by external fields. Magnetoelectric multiferroics  are receiving enormous attention as they open the road to new forms of multifunctional devices. However, they challenge our fundamental understanding of magnetic and ferroelectric order because a strong magnetoelectric coupling is incompatible with traditional mechanisms of ferroelectricity. The recent discovery of a new class of materials (type-II multiferroics) in which the magnetic and electric properties are strongly coupled is attracting very much interest because of the possibility to manipulate magnetism and spins by electric fields and vice-versa, to magnetically control electric charges. Future applications in information technology require new multiferroic materials fulfilling all technological requirements. Along with its technological functionalities, multiferroics are also of great interest in fundamental research into strongly correlated oxides and quantum matter.

  • Novel oxides with spin state instabilities for electronic and energy applications

    Cobalt oxides present a plethora of very interesting properties like metal-insulator transitions, spin-state changes, giant magnetoresistance, double-exchange, phase separation, high thermoelectric power, oxygen diffusivity, mixed-conduction, charge and orbital ordering or superconductivity among others. These properties are interesting not only from a fundamental point of view but also due to their potential applicability in different fields. One very remarkable characteristic of many cobalt compounds is the ability of Co ions to adopt different spin states. This makes that Co oxides have, in comparison with other transition metal oxides, an extra degree of freedom: the spin state of Co. So, the investigation of novel cobaltites with different structures and prepared in different forms is between the most attractive opportunities within strongly correlated systems: the spin state of Co at selected sites in the structure plays a key role in the structural, magnetic, magnetotransport properties, electronic and ion mobility or the thermoelectric power. This research is inscribed inside the wider objective of understand and control the spin state and electronics degrees of freedom of Co cations, especially with 3+ valence. Trivalent cobalt oxides exhibit unique electronic phases characterized by the interplay between nearly degenerate spin states.

  • Large Area Molecular Electronics

    Organic based semiconducting and conducting materials are attracting a great deal of interest for low-cost applications since they can be processed from solution, on large areas and on flexible substrates. Further, organic materials offer the possibility to tune their properties by chemical synthesis. Some NANOMOL researchers are focusing on the design and fabrication of devices such as organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) and sensors from both a fundamental as well as applied point of view.

  • Molecular Electronics And Spintronics

    The use of molecules as active components in electronic devices will permit to further progress towards device miniaturization since ultimately a bit of data information will be stored in a single molecule. In NANOMOL efforts are being placed on the design, synthesis and application of electroactive molecular systems that can act as wires, switches or rectifiers. Further, we are working on the emerging field of organic spintronics that aims at exploiting not only the charge but also the spin of the molecules to develop memory devices.

  • Molecular Magnetism and Organic Radicals

    NANOMOL has been involved on Molecular Magnetism based in organic radicals since 1985. Our current research is mainly focused on organic radicals as active element of switchable electro-magnetic devices and for using them as polarization agents for dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) as well as radical dendrimers as contrast agents in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

  • Nanomedicine and Molecular Biomaterials

    Nanomedicine: Materials characterized by exceptional properties attributable to their nanoscopic structure, can significantly contribute to the development of more efficient and less toxic drugs, more selective and sensitive disease-detection systems, and more effective tissue regeneration procedures. 

    Biomaterials: There are nowadays many expectations in the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering for new biocompatible materials that combine the intrinsic biological functions of natural tissues (biocompatibility, biological activity, etc..) with the typical properties of artificial materials (processability, low-cost, mechanical properties, etc). 

  • Soft Material Processing

    Soft materials are materials that can be easily deformed by thermal stresses or thermal fluctuations at about room temperature. Soft materials include liquids, polymers, foams, gels, colloids, granular materials, as well as most soft biological materials. The development of scalable processes for the large production of soft materials with controlled micro, nano- and supramolecular structure is still challenging. At Nanomol we investigate and develop new scalable production platforms, mainly based on compressed fluids, for the production of soft molecular materials with application in nanomedicine.

The current research fields of the laboratory derive from its deep knowledge on structural crystallography and from the corresponding structure-property relationships. New concepts and procedures have been developed during the years as new Patterson search methods or efficient and robust algorithms for phase refinement by direct methods which have been extended to powder diffraction. The study of the topology of experimental electron densities led to a deeper understanding of the hydrogen bond. Also, the expertise in surface crystallography has rendered possible not only the determination of difficult surface reconstructions but also the location of the absorbed molecules on substrates by grazing x-ray diffraction methods with synchrotron radiation. The expertise in structural determination and characterization of low dimensional systems and nanostructured materials by using UHV and synchrotron radiation techniques permits chemical, physical and structural analysis of surface phenomena in nanoscience field. On the other hand, the preparation and characterization of functionalized and nanocomposited aerogels has driven interesting new materials for applications in dye lasers and catalysis. Among the specialities of the researchers of the laboratory it should be mentioned i. the determination of complex crystal structures of microporous materials and molecular compounds from powder data; ii. the instrumental development of Mössbauer spectroscopy equipment e.g. the building and patenting of a miniaturised Micro-Mössbauer. Funded by several industrial contracts, the group also works in the preparation and characterisation of new materials like silica aerogels, nanomagnetism, drug delivery and magnetic imaging, gas purification sieves and catalysis for CO2 reduction for H2 production (in collaboration with the UPC).

  • DEVELOPMENT OF ACTIVE MOLECULAR-BASED COMPONENTS FOR ELECTRONIC NANODEVICES (TMOL4TRANS)

    A main project in the group is the creation of advanced molecular systems that can be accomodated (hence, be inserted) within graphene electrodes toward the creation of robust hybrid three-terminal nanodevices. My view involves the synthesis of the desired molecules (curcuminoid (CCMoids)/porphyrinoid (PPDS) in nature), their characterization in bulk (solid state and studies in solution) and deposition on graphene electrodes. In a first stage such systems can act as nano-wires, capable exclusively of electronic transport however, coordination of such systems to metallic centers can provide additional propertie highly interesting in spintronics toward the creation of switches and memory nanodevices.

    Our goal is the control of the properties and study of deposition of such molecules having as a final step the I-V measurements of the final nanodevices. With this in mind, we collaborate with international groups (STM, MCBJ and BJ techniques) and perform the measurements ourselves by the use of a cryogenic probe station.  

    This project is linked to an ERC-consolidator Grant (Acronym: Tmol4TRANS).

  • DEVELOPMENT OF HIGHLY DIMENSIONAL MOLECULAR-BASED MATERIALS

    A major aim of crystal engineering and supramolecular chemistry is the rational synthesis of metallo-aggregates and self-assembled systems with new functions based on novel magnetic properties, light responsiveness, biomedical applications, catalytic activity, fluorescence, or redox properties, among others. These useful and interesting properties may lead to the application of such assemblies, as for example: in sensors, compact information storage devices for next-generation computers, catalysts in industrial processes and medical applications (such as implants, contrast agents for CAT scans,…).

    The goal here is the design, synthesis and characterization, with a strong emphasis on the material properties, of these novel species. This approach involves the specific combination of polydentate ligands (curcuminoid (CCMoids)/porphyrinoid (PPDS)) that can accommodate a number of metallic/metalloid centers, providing interesting optic and/or electronic features. Additional bridging ligands may also be used to facilitate the creation of different architectures (1D (chains), 2D (layers) and 3D (MOFs, coordination polymers).

    Considering this major aim, our projects include detailed spectroscopic characterizations of the final species by advanced techniques (SQUID, EPR, NMR, electrochemistry, fluorecence studies, …) as well as deposition in different surfaces/electrodes (functionalized or not, Au, graphene, Si/SiO2, using different techniques as for example µ-CP, micro-contact printing) of the final species, then studies of the created substrates (AFM, TEM, SEM, STM, XPS,…) and electronic/optical final properties (creation of three-terminal devices, confocal microscopy, etc). 

  • DEVELOPMENT OF MAGNETIC MOLECULAR SYSTEMS

    Closely related to nanotechnology, many promising advanced materials are based on magnetic principles. At the nanoscale such features can be related to the paramagnetic behavior of coordination compounds (0D). Therefore, a most challenging project is the development of organic-inorganic hybrid materials, with emphasis in such property. 

    Here, I am interested in develop materials with 3d/4f centers with emphasis in the control of coordination of such systems, their magnetic characterization and nano-structuration. Regarding the last part, coordination molecules are soft-materials and it is crucial to determine the optimal deposition method/s toward the creation of robust systems.

    The design, characterization and study of properties of such systems are closely related to the techniques described in the other lines. Overall. the three lines unify in the general idea of making functional materials based on molecules taking advantages on the properties of the organic ligand (curcuminoid (CCMoids)/ porphyrinoid (PPDS)) and/or the metallic center.

Today, the chemistry of boron clusters, has achieved a sufficient degree of maturity that has led to new applications, in many cases not attainable with conventional organic compounds. For instance, boron clusters readily offer structural hollow spheres, something that is utterly difficult with organic compounds. Boron clusters are applied in this group in the fields of energy, environmental science, molecular electronics and medicine.

About

Materials processing technologies which imply the presence of laser radiation are versatile, rapid, allow high spatial resolution, and ensure reproducibility. Laser-matter interactions involve the development of a huge number of complex physical and chemical mechanisms, leading to materials transformations which cannot be obtained by conventional techniques. The aim of our work is to obtain nanostructured functional materials by means of different laser techniques such as Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD), Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation (MAPLE), Laser Direct Write (LDW), and Laser Surface Processing (LSP). We develop high quality thin films of organic-inorganic nanocomposites and nanostructures such as semiconductor quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and graphene-based composites using MAPLE and PLD techniques. We are also investigating the chemical transformation by LSP of complex systems made of carbon-based nanomaterials, and the recrystallization of different types of nanostructures for energy, environmental, electronics and sensing applications. The experimental work, synthesis of the materials and their compositional-structural characterisation is complemented with computer simulations of the laser-matter interactions. The LPR Group leaders obtained the "International Association of Advanced Materials Scientist Medal (IAAM Scientist medal) for the year 2016" due to their contribution in the field of "Advanced Materials Science and Technology"
