Design and realization of 2D systems for Electron Paramagnetic Resonance spectroscopy applications

The project is constituted by several aspects ranging from the design of 2D structures for the enhancement of localized magnetic fields for studying films of thin Molecular Magnets by EPR spectroscopy, up to the realization of 2D polymeric systems behaving as Quantum Sensors.
