Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Antiferromagnetic materials have experienced an accelerated interest, which is likely motivated by the possibility of overcoming limitations in ferromagnet-based devices. Their macroscopic zero-net magnetization and ultrafast dynamics in the picosecond time scale enables new robust, ultrafast, and scalable memory and computing technologies. In recent years, several works have proven that antiferromagnets fulfill the two main requirements to develop these new technologies and devices, which are as follows: (1) the electric control of their magnetic order, via extrinsic and intrinsic Spin Orbit Torques or magnetoelectric effects; and (2) magnetoresistive effects such as anisotropic and anomalous magnetoresistances.

Beyond memory applications, their fast-dynamics make them a suitable candidate for nanoscale Terahertz sources and detectors. Moreover, their low magnon dissipation and large spin coherence length makes it possible to implement new systems for information transmission in quantum computing.

This Special Issue of Magnetochemistry is a good opportunity to publish your innovative research works in antiferromagnetic spintronics, and more specifically, in the fields listed below.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Magnetochemistry 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 2700 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.
