Special Issue Information
The discovery of giant magnetoresistance in the late 1980s marked the beginning of spintronics, which has evolved into the broad and interdisciplinary field at the intersection of physics, materials science, nanotechnology it is today. Especially in the past decade, we have seen many breakthroughs in exploiting the spin degree of freedom of charge carriers in nanodevices for nonvolatile memory and logic operations. The improved understanding of solid-state transport phenomena has accelerated progress and led to the development of original device concepts for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and beyond-CMOS applications. The discovery of new physics, materials and functionalities, and advances in material synthesis and nanofabrication methods have synergistically contributed to a paradigm shift in the microelectronic industry and placed spintronics in a favorable position.
Fascinated by this immense progress, we are now looking forward to creating a unique collection of research papers, perspectives, and review articles that focus on “Spintronic Memory and Logic Devices”. We are happy to welcome submissions on theoretical and experimental works tackling materials, physics, and engineering aspects of spintronics with an orientation towards device applications.
We look forward to receiving your submission.

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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
