A Special Section in this issue (pp. 1257–1392) is devoted to research conducted in the research group FOR 522 headed by Prof. Marius Grundmann (University of Leipzig, Germany). The group designed and realized various nanostructures with three-dimensionally controlled geometry. Nanowires based on III–V and II–VI semiconductors as well as thermoelectric materials have been investigated. Curved structures – screws, spirals, tubes, and scrolls – have been fabricated using internal strains and specially designed growth processes. Out of the various explored structures promising routes for the study of fundamental effects have been identified which provide ample opportunities for further research.
