Cover Picture: One Shot Laser Pulse Induced Reversible Spin Transition in the Spin-Crossover Complex [Fe(C4H4N2){Pt(CN)4}] at Room Temperature (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 26/2005)

44_26/2005A reversible spin transition ... ... occurs when a single laser pulse (8 ns) is applied in the hysteresis loop (black curve) of the spin-crossover complex [Fe(pyrazine){Pt(CN)4}] (structure shown). This bi-directional, photoinduced spin switching occurs at room temperature over a wide region of bistability and involves magnetization as well as color changes (low spin: red; high spin: yellow). More details on this phenomenon are given in the Communication by A. Bousseksou and co-workers on page 4069 ff.
