Special Issue "Magnetoelectric Materials and Their Applications"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: magnetoelectric materials and devices
In recent decades, tremendous progress has been made in the fabrication and investigation of magnetoelectric (ME) materials, whose magnetization is changed by an electric field, and electric polarization is changed by a magnetic field. New single-phase ME crystals with room operating temperature were synthesized. Particulate and layered composites of various magnetostrictive and piezoelectric materials with high field conversion efficiency were made. Possibilities of using ME materials in high-sensitivity magnetic field sensors, low-frequency and microwave signals processing devices, data storage elements, and energy harvesting devices were demonstrated.
This Special Issue calls for papers that report on recent advances in the synthesis, research, theoretical description, and application of both single-phase and composite ME materials. In addition to traditional areas of ME materials research, nanocomposite ME materials, lead-free ME materials, flexible ME structures based on piezoelectric and magnetic polymers, strongly anisotropic ME materials, ME structures with semiconductor and active optical layers, nonlinear ME effects, ME devices for the high-frequency range, ME materials-based artificial synaptic devices, and problems in ME devices’ miniaturization are of interest. The potential readers (and authors) of this Special Issue will be material scientists, physicists, chemists, and engineers.

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.
