Professor Garg carries out theoretical studies of the magnetization dynamics of molecular nanomagnets such as Fe_8. These novel magnetic systems display signatures of extreme quantum behavior such as ground state tunneling of giant spin. At the same time, they also display extreme classical behavior such as ultra slow relaxation. These studies are relevant to experimental efforts around the world to incorporate these molecules into a variety of applications such as coherent quantum information processing, magnetic molecular transistors, and nanomagnetic memories.
