Abstract:Organic building blocks are increasingly applied in current nanoelectronics research and development. In this thesis, the assembly and magneto-electrical characterization of several hybrid organic-inorganic magnetically active systems were described. Several molecular approaches were developed to assemble magnetic nanoparticles on various substrates with controllable density. This is considered as a step forward towards nanoparticle based hybrid spintronics devices. An electron interferometer was developed and measured with the final purpose of studying electron coherent transport through molecular assemblies. At the end, a novel, facile molecular fabrication method for inserting isolated localized magnetic moments in a metal film with tunable density is presented. This offers a model system to study the mutual interaction of localized magnetic moments and their interplay with itinerant conduction electrons.
