Functionalized individual semiconductor nanowires (SNWs) and 3D SNW arrays attract a continuously growing interest for applications in optoelectronics, sensing, and energy storage. High-resolution field-emission analytical (S)TEM enables critical insights into the morphology, crystalline and electronic structures and chemical compositions of single-crystalline high-aspect-ratio SNWs as perspective building blocks suitable for both a large scale-up synthesis and fabrication. Furthermore, SNW-based lab-on-a-chip devices may allow direct correlation between functional properties tailored for specific performance with the heterostructure morphology and atomic arrangement of the nanoscale structure being analyzed in various (S)TEM modes.
