Thermally activated charge transfer in a Prussian blue derivative probed by resonant inelastic X-ray scattering

Jarrige, I.; Cai, Y. Q.*; Ishii, Hirofumi*; Hiraoka, Nozomu*; Bleuzen, A.*

Charge-transfer excitation is at the source of the photoinduced magnetism observed in several Prussian blue molecule-based magnets. Using resonant inelastic X-ray scattering and X-ray absorption spectroscopy, we probe directly the thermally-activated charge transfer in a photomagnetic Fe-Co cyanide, Cs$$_{0.7}$$Co$$_{4}$$[Fe(CN)$$_{6}$$]$$_{2.9}$$[V]$$_{1.1}$$. 16H$$_{2}$$O, where [V] represents [Fe(CN)$$_{6}$$] vacancies. The temperature dependence of both Co and Fe valence ratios is estimated for the first time in one cooling run, thus yielding a more complete picture of the temperature-induced cooperative electronic modifications. This novel approach, benefiting from relatively short acquisition times, opens the possibility for realtime characterization of the photoinduced magnetism in molecule-based magnets.
