About This Topic

Dear Colleagues,
We have experienced an era of newly synthesized 2D materials and their uses in a wide range of electronic for the sesning system; the Industrial 4.0 era has already begun. World’s electronic industries are at the forefront of research and development in response to new demands from academia and industry. Gathering fresh ideas and knowledge in emerging spintronic components and electronic devices is both timely and required. New electronic materials in low-dimensional structures provide alternatives to traditional materials that are smaller, more efficient, and safer for the environment. We anticipate that researchers will continue to contribute to this subject. This Special Issue strives to provide a thorough list of world's cutting-edge spintronics and electrical components and equipment. The Special Issue will include original research, reviews, and highly regarded articles.
