The ‘Antiferromagnetic Spintronics’ Special Topic in the Journal of Applied Physics offers an overview of the most active research areas under investigation in the broad field of antiferromagnetic spintronics. In particular, featured topics include fundamental magnetic properties, spin transport, switching, and domain wall or skyrmion motion of collinear and non-collinear anti ferromagnets, as well as growth and characterization techniques. A variety of theoretical and experimental works on fundamental magnetic properties of various antiferromagnetic materials are reported. Special attention is given to the investigation of the magnetic anisotropy profiles, the detailed structure of these are extremely important for the effective control of antiferromagnetic states.
