    it says that this could be used for spintronics.
    But, I wonder, could this also be used to make organic magnets (either permanent magnets or electromagnets ) that have stronger magnetic field strength than the best plastic magnets and be good enough for practical use in electric motors?
    -The link doesn't appear to hint at the kind of potential maximized magnetic strength we are talking about here but I guess a crude approximation could be worked out by the basic physics.
