Emil Andreasen Klahn

Single-molecule magnets represent the smallest analogue of a classical magnet with potential uses in quantum computing and high-density information storage. In his work, Emil Andreasen Klahn, used diffraction with polarized neutrons, a type of radiation produced at large-scale international facilities, to study how the magnetic properties of these molecules align with their structure. During his studies, Emil Andreasen Klahn has contributed to fundamental developments of this technique and showed how the results obtained from it can be understood in relation to existing methods and theories. This research points towards a more intimate understanding of the correlation between molecular structure and magnetism.

The PhD study was completed at the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.

This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
