Rational design and syntheses of nanostructured materials have been developed over the past decades, targeting applications in optics and electronics. The engineered nanostructured materials include zero-dimensional nanocrystals, one-dimensional nanowires, two-dimensional nanostructures, and their hybrids. They exhibit unique optical and electrical properties, which enable the possible advances in the fields of solar technologies, optical and electronic devices, in terms of the high photoresponse, superior electrical conductivity, tuneable optical absorption/emission, compatible multifunctionality and facile device integration. It is important to explore novel optical and electrical phenomena, to uncover the structure/property relationships of the artificial nanostructures, and to understand the mechanisms of new physical behaviours on the nanoscale in these optical and electronic applications. Continuous and dedicated efforts made in this promising field may improve the control of the nanostructures for high performance nanodevices.
