Abstract

We have studied the Raman spectrum and photoemission of hybrid magneto-fullerene devices. For C60 layers on cobalt, the spin polarized electron transfer shifts the photoemission energy, reducing the zero phonon contribution. The total luminescence of hybrid devices can be controlled via spin injection from magnetic electrodes, with changes of the order of 10%-20% at room temperature. Spin polarised currents alter as well the Raman spectrum of the molecules, enhancing some modes by a factor 5 while shifting others by several wavenumbers due to a spin-dependent hopping time and/or enhanced intermolecular interactions. These results can be used to measure spin polarisation in molecules or to fabricate magneto-optic and magneto-vibrational devices.
