Abstract

Dynamics of the magnetization of microscopic molecules in a sweeping field is studied, where the adiabatic motion in quantum dynamics and thermal incoherent effects are combined and various interesting phenomena appear. We have also studied possible mechanisms of the tunneling in half-integer spin systems, and discuss methods to manipulate the spin state by making use of characteristics of quantum dynamics.
