Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During recent years, magnetic materials have attracted the attention of both experimentalists and theorists for their intriguing properties exhibited at the nanoscale level. During the last two decades, the underlying physics of the complex magnetization dynamics in magnetic systems such as ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic films and confined magnetic systems of different shapes including nanopillars and waveguides has been widely studied by means of the formulation of sophisticated mathematical models, both in terms of classical and quantum description.  On the other hand, during the same period, there has been an intense experimental activity able to confirm several phenomena predicted by the theoretical models and to discover new effects. These efforts have led to the fabrication of several technological applications such as magnetic memories, microwave oscillators, modulators, magnetic sensors, logic gates, diodes, transistors, etc. The study of the interplay between topology and physics in low-dimensional magnetic systems via the spin-transfer-torque and spin-Hall effects paved the way for the fabrication of spintronic devices. The aim of this Special Issue is to attract world-leading scientists to present the latest exciting theoretical and experimental results in the field of low-dimensional magnetic systems, discussing their underlying physics in different magnetic configurations and suggesting concrete applications. The accepted contributions will include theoretical developments, experimental observations and measurements, and potential applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Magnetism is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
