Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the recent decades, the use of magnetic elements with nanoscale dimensions has spread from the typical fields of magnetic storage, spintronics and technological applications towards biomedical applications such as drug delivery, magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia, just to mention some examples.

Typically, an ensemble of such elements is used in applications, and, therefore, interactions between the magnetic elements are ubiquous and may give rise to magnetic collective properties that are not present at the individual element level. Examples include dipolar interactions between nanoparticles in assemblies and exchange coupling between them. Additionally of importance is the case of magnetic elements (disks, tubes, wires and so on) supporting non-uniform excitations such as domain walls, spin waves, plasmons, vortices or skyrmions, where the proximity between the elements gives rise to interactions between these excitations.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is aimed at featuring recent advances in studies addressing the effects that the interactions mentioned above and coupling between magnetic elements of all types have on their static and dynamic magnetic properties. The selection of articles finally published in this issue should should allow us to illustrate how we can control interactions so as to avoid their undesired effects in some cases and, at the same time, to show how their fine tuning can be exploited positively to discover new phenomena. Researchers working in the field of nanomagnetism spintronics and biomedical applications at the experimental or theoretical level are welcome to contribute with their recent findings in the field, submitting a review or original article.

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.
