Assistant Professor

Fabio Donati

Fabio Donati’s research focuses on the magnetism and quantum coherence of surface-supported individual atoms and molecules. His main achievement is the discovery of magnetic stability in single rare earth atoms, a result that proves the possibility of downscaling magnetic memories down to the ultimate limit of an atom. His experimental expertise includes X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD), Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR).
“There are only two possible conclusions: if the result confirms & hypothesis, then you have just made a measure. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you made a discovery"
