The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section on: “Advanced Spintronic Devices: Concepts, Materials and Technology”

Spintronics uses magnetic degrees of freedom for information processing and storage. Based on the commercial success of magnetic random-access memory and magnetic sensor technology, the field has received strongly growing interest in recent years. Numerous advanced spintronic device concepts have been proposed and both experimentally and theoretically studied within emerging research fields such as magnonics, magnetoelectrics, spin-orbitronics, or spin-caloritronics. These topics are greatly interesting from the point of view of fundamental science, but also promise potential for disruptive applications in numerous fields of (micro-)electronics.

This special issue covers all aspects of advanced spintronics with a focus on (micro- or nanoscale) device applications. Contributions are welcome at all levels, including fundamental science, novel materials, technology concepts, and device fabrication and characterization. The special issue intends to provide a platform to bring together researchers in various multidisciplinary fields in basic science and engineering, such as electrical engineering, computer science, materials science and chemistry, and physics.

Relevant topics of interest to this special section include (but are not limited to):

  • Novel concepts, materials, design and integration for spintronic devices
  • Magnetic devices and concepts for Boolean or neuromorphic computing
  • Magnetic devices and concepts for RF applications
  • Novel magnetic memories and sensors
  • Magnetic devices for brain inspired circuits
  • Architecture for logic in spintronic memories
  • Spintronic devices for bio applications

Manuscripts for the TNANO Special Section must be submitted on-line using the IEEE TNANO manuscript template. Follow the guideline (, and submit your paper to ScholarOne Manuscripts at, indicating in the cover letter that you wish the paper to be considered for “IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) Special Session on Advanced Spintronic Devices: Concepts, Materials and Technology”. Please note that the type of submissions is Regular Manuscripts, i.e., 4 to 6 pages (over-length page charge is applicable for up to 6 extra pages) in the two-column IEEE format, which includes figures, tables, and references. On submission to TNANO, authors should select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.”

Manuscripts will be subject to the standard competitive and constructive peer-review TNANO criteria with no article publishing charges. Accepted papers are published on the web in IEEE Xplore as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.
