Cross-functional nanomaterial systems have fast become an attractive approach towards mitigating the property-related limitations of an individual nanomaterial and realization of high-performance device platforms in different technology areas such as nanoelectromechanical systems, optoelectronics, energy conversion, sensors technology and in some cases even opening opportunities for new applications. This special issue of Science PG focusses on the development of novel tools and techniques based on the combination of different type of nanomaterials in terms of dimensionality and functional characteristics. Especially nanowire/nanotube, the ‘work-horse’ nanostructures for many device applications have been in last years modified in different methods such as surface decoration with zero-dimensional objects possessing different functionalities targeting specific applications e.g. gas sensing etc. Similar platforms and new approaches towards the integration of novel material systems with their unique properties is expected to widen the outreach of such platforms in key technology areas. This issue invites original manuscripts on such cross-functional material platforms including but not limited to materials such as Graphene based materials (GBMs), two-dimensional inorganic materials such as transition metal chalcogenides (TMDs), MXenes, Perovskites, organic polymers, nanoparticles etc. and their combinations for new applications.
