Correlating Blocking Temperatures in Single Molecule Magnets with Raman Relaxation

We report a six coordinate DyIII single-molecule magnet<br>(SMM) with an energy barrier of 1110 K for thermal relaxation of<br>magnetization. The sample shows no retention of magnetization<br>even at 2 K and this led us to find a good correlation between the<br>blocking temperature and the Raman relaxation regime for SMMs.<br>The key parameter is the relaxation time (𝜏<sub>switch</sub>) at the point where<br>the Raman relaxation mechanism becomes more important than<br>Orbach.
