Special Issue Information
Thin film magnetism has led to fundamental advances in the physics of magnetism as well as important technological applications. With the rapid development of deposition and characterisation techniques, new phenomena were discovered, such as the GMR effect, which made a crucial contribution to the storage technology which paved the way for growing research on spin-dependent phenomena and the emergence of the field of spintronics. Spintronic devices rely on the control of spin-polarized currents which, on a magnetic film, may induce magnetization reversal or dynamics without the need for an external magnetic field.
This Special Issue is dedicated to magnetic properties of thin films such as fundamental properties, e.g., the magnetic moment and magnetic anisotropy. It will cover phenomena including, but not limited to, those that arise from the spin-orbit coupling that encompasses magnetocrystalline anisotropy, magnetic damping/relaxation, orbital moment or spin-orbit torques.
This field is in continuous evolution. Authors are invited to submit original articles, communications, and reviews for this Special Issue.

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 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. 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 2300 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.
