Magnetic anisotropy is the origin of the single molecule magnet (SMM) behavior which consists in a slow relaxation of the magnetization, and to a blocking of the magnetization for low enough temperatures. Since this bistable behavior may lead to possible technological applications in the domain of data storage and quantum computing, the understanding of the microscopic origin of magnetic anisotropy has received a considerable interest during the last two decades.
