Summary of "An electro-elastic theory for the mechanically-assisted photo-induced spin transition in core-shell spin-crossover nanoparticles."

The development of heterostructure materials may lead to new features that cannot be obtained with natural materials. Here we simulate a model structurally hybrid core-shell nanoparticle with different lattice parameters between an electronically inert shell and an active spin crossover core. The nanoparticle consists of a 2D core with 20 × 20 size with square symmetry, surrounded by a shell made of 10 atomic layers. The low temperature photoexcitation of the core shows a significant environment-dependent behavior. In particular, we demonstrate that a shell with a large lattice parameter accelerates the low-spin to high-spin photoexcitation process of the core through the single domain nucleation mechanism while a moderate shell lattice parameter leads to spatially-homogeneous growth of the high-spin fraction. We found that the mechanical retro-action of the shell may cause elastic instability of the core leading to efficient control and manipulation of its photo-conversion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique for detecting short-lived reactive FREE RADICALS in biological systems by providing a nitrone or nitrose compound for an addition reaction to occur which produces an ELECTRON SPIN RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY-detectable aminoxyl radical. In spin trapping, the compound trapping the radical is called the spin trap and the addition product of the radical is identified as the spin adduct. (Free Rad Res Comm 1990;9(3-6):163)

Molecules which contain an atom or a group of atoms exhibiting an unpaired electron spin that can be detected by electron spin resonance spectroscopy and can be bonded to another molecule. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Chemical and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
