Optical Control of Magnetic Properties in Molecule-Based Magnets

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 128)


We introduce a novel magnetic phenomenon, i.e., a photo-induced magnetic pole inversion. This phenomenon can be achieved by the combination of two new types of magnetic behavior developed recently using a Prussian blue analog molecule-based magnet. One of these is known as mixed ferro-ferrimagnetism, and the other is photo-magnetism. We first describe briefly molecule-based magnets, particularly Prussian blue analogs, and then describe these two new types of magnetism Finally, the photo-induced magnetic pole inversion phenomenon is described.
