New Horizons in Spintronics

The spintronics community is actively engaged in identifying new material classes to interface with ferromagnets or indeed new classes of magnetic materials to replace the active ferromagnetic components. In this focus issue of Nature Materials, we take a look at recent developments involving ferrimagnetic materials and topological insulators, with an eye on their potential for use in spintronics.
