The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section on:


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.

    IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO)
    Special Issue on

    “Materials and Devices towards Advanced Flexible Sensors”

    Flexible electronics is a technology diverging from the conventional rigid silicon technology and has stimulated fundamental scientific and technological research efforts. Remarkably different from generation 1.0 electronic products, the current smartwatch, smart wristband, the next-generation flexible electronics open up a wide range of exciting new applications such as 1) flexible lighting and display technologies for consumer electronics, architecture, and textiles; 2) wearables with sensors that help monitor our health and habits; 3) implantable electronics for improved medical imaging and diagnostics; 4) as well as extending the functionality of robots and unmanned aircraft through lightweight and conformable energy harvesting devices and sensors. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, flexible electronics devices have shown great potential for remote interaction through real-time on-body monitoring, wireless transmission, and cloud diagnosis.

    “Flexible Sensors”, as one of the most important elements of advanced flexible electronics, are required to be engineered with advanced processes and materials so that they can directly contact with the skin, and having other important and non-conventional device properties such as adequate adhesion, good conformality, breathability, biocompatibility, etc. Thus, a comprehensive understanding of materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry, biology, and physics at practical levels are critical in developing advanced flexible sensors.

    We are now seeking your contribution (minimum 6 pages of manuscript) for a special issue on “Materials and Devices towards Advanced Flexible Sensors” in the IEEE Open Journal on Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO). The aim of this Special Issue is to serve as a forum for disseminating innovative research and developments in the emerging field of the multi-functional and ubiquitous flexible sensors. Papers addressing this technology and review articles providing critical viewpoints are sought, including, but not limited to, flexible inorganic/organic materials, fundamental issues and advanced simulations underlying flexible systems, fabrication and integration technologies for flexible sensors, and studies on real-time applications of wearable devices.

    Manuscripts for OJ-NANO must be prepared using the “IEEE manuscript template” and “Information for Authors” at, and be submitted on-line via Manuscript Central ( On submission to OJ-NANO, authors should select the “Special Issue: Materials and Devices towards Emerging Flexible Sensors” as a manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.” Manuscripts must focus on nanotechnology as reflected by technical contents and references.

    IEEE NTC Mentoring program: from Effectiveness to Durability
    (NTC MENED program)

    First Training Event, July 8th, 2022, Palma de Mallorca, Spain,
    in conjunction with IEEE NANO 2022

    The major strength of IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) resides in its large number of members and volunteers, and the unlimited spectrum of nanotechnology applications. Currently, the IEEE NTC activities (technical, educational, conferences, publications, standing committees, etc.) and initiatives are extremely rich and rise the IEEE NTC to the level of a well-recognized world leader in the field of nanotechnology. To guarantee sustainability of NTC activities and to enable successful succession planning in the NTC’s leadership, a new initiative has been launched at the beginning of 2022, namely the IEEE NTC Mentoring program: from Effectiveness to Durability, or the so-called NTC MENED program. The NTC MENED program aims to enable the NTC volunteers to grow indispensable skills to carry out the NTC activities and to gradually integrate a larger number of well-trained NTC volunteers into the different initiatives. The objectives of NTC MENED program are as follows: 1) To reach a high level of success in the NTC activities; 2) To maximize the chance of new volunteers to reach their goals; and 3) To establish a mentoring culture that concerns the durability of NTC MENED program. Through the NTC MENED program, the final goal of NTC is to connect people and create teams in which everyone brings ideas, trust and rapport.

    A call for papers is now open for the IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC) special topic on “Spintronic Devices for Energy Efficient Computing”

    Submission Deadline: September 5th, 2022

    Aims and Scope

    The inherent properties of ferromagnetic materials operating at room temperature and at the nanoscale coupled with various aspects of spin physics offer abundant possibilities and functionalities for developing novel computing and memory devices and their integration. The fundamental advantage of spintronic devices over the semiconductor-based switch is its projected ultra-low operation energy through different switching mechanisms. As an example, the interplay of ferroelectric effect (charge) and ferromagnetic effect (spin) can lead to the energy efficient switching. Meanwhile, the extremely efficient charge-to-spin conversion has become promising through the integration of recently discovered topological effects (topology and chirality) and ferromagnetic effect (spin). One of the key challenges for spintronic devices, the operation speed, has been well addressed recently through the usage of antiferromagnetic materials and the application of spin-orbit-torque switching mechanism and its interplay with other switching mechanisms.

    The most apparent features of spintronic devices are their non-volatility and superior endurance behavior, where spin-based devices outperform other nonvolatile devices for designing computing blocks, nonvolatile processors, logic-in-memory arrays, hyper-dimensional computing. This will enable the energy-efficient computing systems of the future.

    The intrinsic multi-functionalities of spintronic devices have generated many “unexpected computing devices and architectures” in the past decade. One example is the proposal and demonstration of the usage of magnetic tunnel junctions for computing using memory, stochastic computing and probabilistic computing.

    This special topic of the IEEE JXCDC will publish original recent research centered around spintronic logic and memory devices for energy efficient computing, covering the research topics from new spintronic physics, new spintronic materials, to novel spintronic devices, to spintronic circuits and spintronic computing systems.
