2D or not 2D? Beyond the standard model of organic quantum spin liquids (2018–2021)

This project will apply new insights about the magnetic interactions in molecular crystals to model their emergent quantum behaviours via state-of-the-art analytical and computational methods. It will focus on organic charge transfer salts that exhibit superconductivity, multiferroicity, and quantum spin liquids, as a result of the strong interactions between electrons. This will provide new approaches to modelling the electronic and magnetic properties of structurally complex materials. Many have widespread potential for applications, such as electricity transport, thermoelectric refrigeration, field sensing, spintronics, and in future classical and quantum computers.
