The current status and future developments of the use of electron magnetic resonance (EMR) for the investigation of magnetic nano- systems is here reviewed.

Abstract

The current status and future developments of the use of electron magnetic resonance (EMR) for the investigation of magnetic nano- systems is here reviewed. The aim is to stimulate efforts to provide a unified view of the properties of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) comprising a few hundred magnetic centres, and molecular nanomagnets which contain up to ca. one hundred magnetic centres (MNM). The size of the systems is becoming the same but the approaches to the interpretation of their properties are still different, being bottom up for the latter and top down for the former. We make the point here of the need for a common viewpoint, highlighting the status of the two fields and giving some hints for the future developments. EMR has been a powerful tool for the investigation of magnetic nano- objects and it can provide a tool of fundamental importance for the development of a unified view.
