Special Issue "Research Advances in Magnetism and Magnetoelasticity: From Materials to Sensors"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
The magnetoelastic Villari effect has been known for over one hundred years. Previously it was commonly used for the development of high measurement range force sensors, called pressductors or tensductors. Such sensors were successfully used in industrial applications, e.g., enabling robust and reliable measurements of high masses in silos and tanks, stress monitoring in cable bridges, etc.
However, recently developed magnetic materials create new possibilities in the utilization of magnetoelastic effects. As a result, magnetoelastic research has received a fresh impetus, especially due to the development of microscale applications. A wide range of magnetoelastic effects (such as Villari effect, Wiedemann effect, Barrett effect, stress-impedance as well as Guillemin effect) are applied for the development of microscale, high-end sensors for mechatronics, bio-medical assessment, chemical detection, or nanometrology applications. The development of such sensors requires a novel approach for functional materials research and characterization. Moreover, sensors application creates new challenges in advanced signal processing and transducer interfacing.
This Special Issue will present the recent state of the art in the magnetoelastic research, creating the space for experience exchange and scientific discussion for further cooperation.

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.
