      This Special Issue assembles 27 Feature Articles reviewing latest achievements in the research on “Nanowires and nanotubes: From controlled synthesis to functions”. The articles reflect the results of a tight cooperation between groups from physics, chemistry and materials science in this field of research. The work was supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within its Priority Program SPP 1165 (see also the Preface by Margit Zacharias on p. 2303). Starting from a deeper understanding of the growth process, the synthesis of various kinds of nanowires and nanotubes is demonstrated either in free space, within templates or in a pattern arrangement. Future prospects in the field include the development of functional device elements from ordered nanowires and nanotubes and concepts for three-dimensionally connecting such device elements. The images on the front cover show gold dots on a GaN surface (left-most image), ZnO nanowires grown on a photoresist patterned Au structure on silicon (center image), ZnO nanowires grown on GaN/sapphire after nanosphere lithography (monolayer – top left; bilayer – bottom right), a ZnO nanowire overgrown by an alumina shell (top right) and a ZnO nanowire field-effect transistor with tungsten contacts (bottom center).

      In the Feature Article by Achim Walter Hassel et al. (pp. 2380–2392), a novel approach of producing metallic nanostructures is reviewed. Directional solidification of eutectics is a route to produce iso-oriented metallic single crystalline nanowires. Etching or electrochemical oxidation allows selective dissolution of either of the phases to produce nanowire arrays, isolated nanowires, nanopore arrays and also derived structures by combining various process steps. A good understanding of the thermodynamics and the kinetics of the phase transformation and chemical reactions in the systems NiAl–X (X = Re, W, Mo), Ag–Cu and Fe–Au was reached. The image on the back cover shows an array of rhenium single crystalline nanowires embedded in the NiAl matrix after partial dissolution of the matrix. Functional devices based on these nanowires, like high aspect ratio nanowire based STM tips, nanoelectromechanical systems, nanowire pH sensors and sensor arrays were constructed.
