In a previous paper [J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 682 (2016) 012032, arXiv:1605.05593] we studied analytically the energy spectra of a finite-size spin 12 XY chain (molecule) coupled at an arbitrary spin site to a single mode of an electromagnetic field via the Jaynes-Cummings model. We considered spin rings and open spin molecules with up to 4 spins and an interaction restricted to nearest-neighbours. Here we extend our investigation, addressing numerically the energy spectra of molecules of up to 10

Furthermore we analyze the behaviour of an invariant operator, constructed by combining the magnetization of the spin-chain and the total number of photons in the system. We found a strong dependence on the number (even or odd) of sites in the molecules. This study is aimed at finding the appropriate combination of the physical parameters that could make the system suitable for use in quantum computations.
