Researchers from the University of Würzburg managed to create a molecular spintronics switch, using a manganese phthalocyanine molecule. The researchers succeeded in manipulating this molecule using a special deposit and an electrical field to permanently take on two different states.

Molecular spintronics switch bismuth/ silver (Wurzburg)

This molecule cannot be normally switched, but the researchers managed to develop the switch by placing the molecule on metallic surface built from silver and bismuth atoms.
