Low-dimensional structures have attracted extensive research interest due to their promising applications in nanotechnology. These low-dimensional materials have the potential to make revolutionary changes in science and technology because a reduction in size not only enables a faster speed and greater computing power but also helps reduce device form factors. As such, this book examines the behaviors of oxide nanowires, group III–V compounds, and other nanowires, including basic Si nanowires, metallic wires, and complex geometrical nanowires.
