The properties of various III–V and IV–VI nanowires are studied using simple ab initio methods. The impact of crystal structure, lateral surfaces, passivation of the dangling bonds and quantum confinement on the stability of the nanowires is discussed. III–V and IV–VI nanowires doped with various, in particular magnetic, ions are also discussed. The influence of the crystal structure of the wire on the segregation and formation energies of different dopants and thus on the electric and magnetic properties of the nanowires is shown.
