Soft magnetic materials are the key materials for determining technological development. Especially recently, with the increasing pressure of transformation towards electric cars, Industry 4.0, or digital age technologies, soft magnetic material plays a significant role as critical element of power conversion devices. As a result, a deep knowledge about soft magnetic materials is more important now, than ever in the history of human technical civilization.
Soft magnetic materials have been intensively developed for the last two hundred years. From ultra-soft Mn–Zn ferrites, electrical steels and permalloys, across amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys, and powders, to bulk amorphous alloys and nanosystems, the development of soft magnetics gave the fresh impetus for the development of electric, electronic, and mechatronic devices.
This Special Issue is focused on the synthesis, characterization, and development of new applications utilizing soft magnetic materials. This covers both macro- and micro-scale materials and devices, as well as advancements in the production, measuring techniques, modelling, and understanding of the physical phenomena connected with different aspects of the magnetic hysteresis loop of soft magnetic materials.

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.
