Introduction

One-dimensional materials are subject of interest among nanomaterials research due to their high functionality imparted by their geometric shape and high surface area. Nanowires show promise to serve as building blocks for advanced sensors, photonics, electronics and energy applications.

Applications

One-dimensional nanostructures hold potential to harness the optical and electronic properties of semiconductors by controlling their density of states. Nanowires facilitate axial heterostructure growth devoid of lattice mismatch constraints, thus enabling the creation of heterostructures of many different materials and allowing integration of silicon-based microelectronics with compound semiconductor-based optoelectronic devices. For instance, metal nanowires could serve as an integral component of future nanodevices, at least as the building blocks interlinking the functional elements such as nano-transistors.

Besides holding potential to serve as electrical connection to nano-circuits, the metal nanowires are likely to be used as the functional components in a variety of applications, ranging from metamaterials to high-sensitivity nano-electrodes, from nano-sensors to high density perpendicular data storage, and much more.

Nanowires are the subject of intense research and the number of publications released in the field is increasing exponentially with time. Researchers worldwide have already demonstrated nanowire solar cells, nanowire sensors, nanowire light emitting diodes, nanowire transistors and nanowire lasers.
