Designer magnetism in copper and manganese
This paper shows that thin films of non-magnetic metals such as copper and manganese can be made magnetic at room temperature by harnessing the charge transfer that takes place at the interface between the metal and a layer of molecules. Such a strategy potentially broadens the range of materials that could be used for magnetic and spintronic devices.
