In the last few years, magnetic materials have attracted the attention of both experimentalists and theorists working in the field of magnetism for their intriguing properties exhibited at the nanoscale level. The underlying physics of complex magnetization dynamics in spintronics, magnonics, and spinorbitronics has been widely studied to implement several technological and industrial applications like magnetic memories, microwave oscillators, modulators, sensors, logic gates, diodes, and transistors. After the first observation of magnetic skyrmions forming in out-of-plane magnetized films under various stimuli such as magnetic fields, electric currents, and temperature gradients, the study of the interplay between topology and physics in low-dimensional magnetic systems via the spin-transfer-torque and spin-Hall effects has opened the route to 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 with special regard to magnonics, spintronics, and spinorbitronics 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
