Herein, we report on the use of such a strategy to produce surface photomagnetism.
The Ru[absolute value of (APBA)]CNT tube exhibits photomagnetism towards external magnets at room temperature as floating on water, similar to the tubes modified with Ru[(bpy).sub.2] [(phen-NH2).sup.2+] [5].
Regarding the origin of the photomagnetism, research has reported that Ru[(bpy).sub.2] (phendione)-2P[F.sub.6] can be paramagnetic at a temperature higher than 293 K [23].
The resulting composites show photomagnetism at room temperature when exposed to irradiation from a 473 nm light.
Such a photoredox reaction, which is induced by the charge-transfer excitation between cyano-bridged metals, is one of the key ingredients of photomagnetism in metal-based molecular systems [8].
In Figure 5, we study DM interaction effects on the photomagnetism, before entering into detailed discussions of the dynamics.
The tunable photomagnetism we revealed here agrees with the polycrystalline-sample measurements [26].
We will thus be able to control a sensitivity of the photomagnetism by tuning a wavelength of the irradiation light.
Such a relationship among three phases may be a key ingredient of the tunable photomagnetism. In order to improve a performance of the photomagnets, it is also necessary to clarify thermal and chemical-doping effects on the phase competition.
