Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnetic materials are a source of technology progress in many areas. There are well-known applications in the electronics, energetics (including green technologies), motor, and car industry. For example, modern soft magnetic materials as a core of transformers or electric motors cause a significant increase of their energetic efficiency, saving energy globally. On the other hand, hard magnetic materials are widely used in computer and energetic technologies as data storage media and high-efficiency electric generators, respectively. Between these two groups, one can observe a family of magnetic materials with excellent properties for broad application spectra (sensors, actuators, energy harvesting devices, magnetic refrigerators, etc.).

The progress in magnetic materials would not be possible without basic science referring to magnetism in the atomic as well as large-scale level. Such research is useful for designing new magnetic systems with unique properties required for different applications.

The Special Issue entitled “Characterization of Magnetism and Electronic Structure in Intermetallics” refers to reviews and/or original research papers in the broad area of magnetic materials, magnetism, as well as its connection between electronic structures. The scope of the issue can be summarized as follows:

  • Basics of magnetism;
  • Magnetic materials;
  • Itinerant and localized magnetism of intermetallic compounds;
  • Electronic structure of magnetic systems;
  • Soft and hard magnets;
  • Magnetocaloric effect;
  • Relation between microstructure and magnetic properties;
  • Simulations of magnetization processes;
  • Magnetism in micro/nanoscale;
  • Other subjects related to magnetism and magnetic materials.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.

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 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 2000 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.
