Special Issue "Advanced Spintronic and Electronic Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2024 | Viewed by 9083
Interests: spintronics and electronics in novel semiconductor materials; micro-nano magnets and other solid-state quantum structures
Over the past two decades, spintronics and electronics have developed very rapidly. Since single-layer graphene with ultrahigh carrier mobility was obtained experimentally in 2004, two-dimensional (2D) electronic materials have sprung up in public. In 2017, low-temperature long-range ferromagnetic order was discovered experimentally both in Cr2Ge2Te6 and CrCl3 monolayer systems. The ferromagnetism in 2D immediately became of tremendous interest to researchers all over the world. Up to now, the studies on the 2D materials have been expanded and correlated with the investigations of both traditional materials and emerging materials including diluted magnetic semiconductors, wide band gap semiconductors, electrocatalysts/photocatalysts and magnetic skyrmions.
This Special Issue will present comprehensive research outlining progress on the studies and application of advanced spintronic and electronic materials. This includes the utilization of strain, light, gate, doping or phase engineering to mediate the related materials. We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering the current progress on these materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- 2D magnetic materials;
- 2D electronic materials;
- Magnetic skyrmion materials;
- Diluted magnetic semiconductors;
- Electrocatalytic/photocatalytic materials;
- Wide band gap materials.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
