Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Magnetoelectric (ME) materials and their thin-film heterostructures, in which two or more ferroic orders exist simultaneously, have attracted ever-increasing research interests. The strong cross-coupling between magnetic and electric orders in ME materials provides alternative routes towards new functional devices with high scalability, speed and low-power consumption—hence making ME-based devices a promising candidate for the beyond-CMOS technology.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the recent advances in new device concepts and architecture, material innovations, and system integrations in ME thin-film-based devices for logic, memory, sensoric, communication, and energy harvesting applications. Specific focus for this issue includes, but is not limited to: voltage-control spintronics for logic and memory devices, ME-based MEMS magnetic field sensors, miniaturized ME antennas, ME energy harvester, and voltage tunable microwave devices. In addition, recent advances in thick-film/bulk ME laminates will also be addressed in this 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 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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
