Abstract

Electrodeposited thin films of the molecule-based magnet Cr5.5(CN)12·11.5H2O exhibit a magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) with large coercive fields at 200 K. As the thickness of the films is reduced to the nanometer scale, the particle size decreases and the magneto-optical hysteresis becomes relatively large.
