Ciss effect observed in an isolated molecule for the first time

October 23, 2023

For the first time, researchers have observed a mysterious phenomenon known as the chirality-induced spin selectivity (Ciss) effect in isolated molecules – unattached to substrates or solid electrodes. This effect, known as Ciss, establishes a strong link between spin and charge motion and therefore has strong implications in macroscopic properties. 'It could have important implications for biology, quantum information, and energy,' said Michael Waisielewski, the project's leader.
