Magnetic metal complexes have been proposed as Qubits or Qudits (d = 2 or d > 2) candidates for Quantum Computing (QC) and Quantum Information Processing (QIP). Herein, we report on the implementation of metal complexes into nanometre-sized (single-) molecular spintronic devices by a combination of bottom-up self-assembly and top-down lithography techniques. The controlled generation of magnetic molecular nanostructures on conducting surfaces and electrodes will be shown, self-assembled on sp2-carbon nano-structures (SW-CNTs, graphene, etc.), or inside the nano-gaps of gold electromigration junctions. The nuclear spin states in the metal complex inside of the obtained spintronic Quantum Devices are finally used to implement the Grover algorithm at the single-molecule level.1-10
