Interests: magnetism and magnetic materials; ferrites; microwave materials and devices; magnetic nanoparticles; permanent magnet systems
Advances in materials systems often lead to technological breakthroughs in the applied sciences and engineering. Examples of such advances in magnetic materials that have spurred new technologies include the discovery and development of giant magnetoresistance (GMR), half metals, multiferroics, super magnets (Nd2Fe14B), microwave ferrites, nanogranular soft magnets, and nanoparticles, among other materials systems. Affected technologies include high-density magnetic storage, spintronics, hybrid and alternative energy, transduces and sensing, RF radar and communication platforms, power generation, conversion, and conditioning, and biomedical advances such as targeted drug delivery. In order to enable and promote such symbiotic interactions one must fully understand the property – structure – performance relationships of the targeted magnetic materials systems.
The main focus of the forthcoming special issue is to present a comprehensive overview to our readers by assembling state-of-the-art research articles and topical reviews on advanced magnetic materials with special emphasis on establishing and conveying property – structure – performance relationships.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
