Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cylindrical nano and micro-wires are attracting a great deal of attention due to their novel geometry-dependent physical properties. They are investigated for applications in advanced technology areas such as new-generation spintronic-based magnetic recording, bio-magnetics, robotics, sensors, and actuators devices. The circular symmetry determines novel spin phenomena and magnetization dynamics related to topology as compared to planar geometries. Multiple topologically non-trivial magnetization structures such as Bloch-point domain walls, helical magnetic configurations, vortices, or skyrmion tubes are the consequences of cylindrical curvature and geometrical confinement. Their responses to electric/magnetic fields, electric current, mechanical stress, or thermal gradients are relevant for the applications in advanced technologies.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the fabrication, characterization, and potential technological applications of cylindrical magnetic wires, as single magnetic structures or as part of 3D ordered architectures, in magnetic sensors and data storage, microwave devices, thermomagneto-electric devices, or bio-applications.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
