The Smeagol discussion list is now open. It will make easier for users to get in touch with the Smeagol developers, specially on questions regarding how to run Smeagol. Most importantly all the developers as well as other list members will receive your e-mails creating an interesting forum for discussion where users can contribute with their own experiences.

We invite all users who wish to register to this service to connect to

There, the new list member will be asked to provide their e-mail address and to pick a password. The user will then be notified by e-mail that he/she has joined the list

To send an e-mail to the mailing list simply address messages to

Although one needs to be a member to post messages to the mailing list, one does not need to be one to search it for previous posts.

6th March 2005

Smeagol makes its debut in Nature Materials. In a work that will be published in the April issue the Smeagol team has investigated spin-transport in molecular spin-valves. This study demonstrates the possibility of very large magnetoresistance in both the tunneling and metallic regimes, and that the signal can be tuned by an appropriate choice of molecules and end groups. Our findings pave the way for a "chemical route" to Spintronics.
