Theoretical Methods in Molecular Spintronics (TMspin)
17.Sep - 20.Sep
Magnetic molecules and atoms studied by scanning probe microscope experiments and molecular transistors represent ideal systems to address the very foundations of the quantum theory of magnetism. The proposed workshop will gather both physicists and chemists to question what electronic structure theory to use for such systems. Hence, the most recent developments in ab-initio methods will be presented with a special focus on those that could describe correlation effects, excitations and complex structural details on equal footing.

The workshop aims at advancing electronic structure theory in order to accurately describe.
Magnetic properties of molecules in the gas phase, in particular spin state energetics and exchange coupling between several magnetic centres.
Magnetic properties of atoms and molecules on surfaces, in particular the Kondo effect and the surface mediated exchange-coupling between adsorbed atoms.
Finite-bias transport and magnetic excitations at the atomic scale.
Description of entangled states from first principle and application to quantum computation in magnetic molecules and atoms.
