Semiconductor nanowires are filamentary crystals with a tailored diameter between the few and ~100 nm. They can be obtained in a free-standing manner or well-organized in a scalable manner on a substrate. Their particular shape and reduced size result advantageous for several technologies. We will discuss the challenges in the synthesis of these materials as well as how they can contribute in next generation of solar cells and computing.
