To obtain nanomaterials with desired properties, various advanced fabrication techniques have been widely developed and frequently employed. Among them, as a key discipline of the bottom-up approach, epitaxial growth allows the grown nanostructures to have well defied orientation relationships, crystallographic directions/planes, crystal structures/phases, and facets/interfaces with their underlying substrates. Such unique features are often essential for securing their unique and high-efficient applications. In the recent decades, epitaxial growth has been widely employed to grow various advanced nanostructures, including semiconductor nanostructures (such as quantum dots, semiconductor nanowires and quantum wells), 2D nanostructures (including ultra-thin nanosheets), and hierarchical nanostructured metal-organic frameworks (MOF-on-MOF). In this theme, we intend to collect a set of manuscripts on the development of these three groups of epitaxial nanostructures, in which their outstanding properties are obtained due to the epitaxy.
We are delighted to consider original research articles within the scope.
