Title: Electronic interactions between gold films and mn12-acetate
Author: Means, Joel Lewis
Abstract: Interactions between Mn12 ?acetate molecular magnets and thin gold films have been explored in light of the theory of weak localization . Low -temperature measurements of the magnetoresistance of gold films of varying thicknesses , with and without the presence of a surface layer of Mn12 ?acetate , have been performed using a dilution refrigerator . Quantitative fits to the data using the predictions of weak localization theory were performed using a least -squares fit method in order to determine characteristic times for elastic , inelastic , spin -orbit and spin scattering events within the gold . These data indicate that the presence of Mn12 ?acetate on the surface of the gold film leads to a significant enhancement of the spin scattering within the gold films .
