Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 November 2023) | Viewed by 3473
Interests: magnetoelectrics; multiferroics; domain and domain walls; spintronics; phase-field modeling; micromagnetic simulation; first-principles calculation
As a special class of materials, multiferroics exhibit more than one of the primary ferroic properties in the same phase, such as ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, and ferroelasticity. Since the first appearance of the word “multiferroics” in the year 2000, great progress has been made in fundamental and application investigations of multiferroic materials. The interplay between different ferroic properties has provided access to promises of unprecedented functionalities in order to create novel electronic or spintronic devices.
This issue of Materials aims to highlight and summarize recent advances in structures, properties, and functionalities in multiferroic materials. Theoretical, computational, and experimental contributions to the following areas are welcome:
- Ferroelectricity (dielectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric materials and devices, ferroelectric domain structures, ferroelectric phase transition, phase-field simulation, first-principles computation, etc.);
- Ferromagnetism or antiferromagnetism (spintronics, domain-wall-based devices, spin-orbit coupling, spin transfer, current-induced domain wall motion, domain engineering, giant magnetostriction, nano-dot, atomic devices, micromagnetic simulation, spin dynamics, etc.);
- Magnetoelectric (single phase, magnetoelectric composites, interface, bias exchange, direct and converse ME coupling, magnetoelectric voltage tunable inductor, superexchange, flexomagnetoelectric effect, etc.).

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. 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 2600 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.
