Magnetic Interfaces at the Nanoscale: From Fundamentals to Technological Applications

Description

Magnetic nanoscale systems are widely studied due to their huge potential in widely diverse technological applications from biomedicine (i.e., tumor therapy, gene sequencing, contrast agents in magnetic imaging, biolabeling, or drug delivery agents) to standard magnetic applications (information technology, permanent magnet applications).

It is unambiguous that the quest of tailor-made and properly functionalized particles is numerous and will be of enormous benefit for the global economy. Although, there are specific prerequisites that should be fulfilled according to specific applications, magnetic nanoscale systems exploitation lies in the control of their interface properties.

Despite the numerous scientific reports appearing to date, magnetic nanoparticles still have to confront the problem of biocompatibility with a not-large-enough magnetic stray field for high-resolution detection schemes. The first problem is the poisonous character of pure 3d and 4f ferromagnetic metals, and the second one is the super paramagnetic fluctuations at usual temperature regimes.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles in understanding and insight of magnetic properties at nanoscale interfaces. We are particularly interested in articles focusing on chemical and magnetic interfaces of nanostructured materials in determining their influences on intrinsic magnetic properties (magnetic coupling and anisotropy) to trace the role of these issues in the macroscopic behavior of nanostructures. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in synthetic procedures of magnetic heterostructures
  • Advances in interface nanomagnetics (ferro/antiferro, hard/soft interfaced nanomagnets)
  • Latest technologies for biomagnetic evaluation and nanotoxicity issues of magnetic nanostructures
  • Multifunctional role of magnetic interfaces
  • Interface mechanisms using model systems (multilayers, core/shell particles)
  • Role of magnetic anisotropy and coupling at the nanoscale and macroscopic magnetic behavior
  • Recent advances in nanomagnetically driven interface magnetic applications (i.e., spintronics, magnetic recording)
  • Low-dimensional (quantum dots, nanowires, and nanowhiskers) magnetic materials: formation and properties
