Inspired by their tremendous potential, we have also investigated thin films of a Blatter radical derivative by using X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD). We observe X-ray magnetic circular dichroism at the nitrogen K-edge, demonstrating a ferromagnetic behavior of the thin films. Our results show a collective magnetic behavior purely ascribed to light organic elements. We anticipate our work to be a starting point in investigating magnetic behavior in purely organic thin films. The tuning of the magnetic properties by tuning the molecular arrangement in films is an encouraging perspective towards revealing new properties and possible applications.
