Nanomaterials, micro- and nanostructures are very important in the context of electronics, photonics and sensing technologies because of their high surface-to-volume ratio and physicochemical dependent properties. Three dimensional network materials built from nanostructures can be easily handled and integrated into devices or other applications. Confined nanostructures from noble metals and perovskites can be used in electronics, optoelectronics, sensing, photonics, and energy storage applications. Nanostructures from metal oxides are exciting materials because of their unique bandgap energy (intermediate between metals and insulators). Therefore, these materials are suitable for various advanced electronic, optical, optoelectronic, and sensor technologies. When metal oxides and noble metals are combined into nanohybrid materials, they acquire even more relevant properties that can be explored in electronics, optoelectronics and sensing technologies. Nanostructures from metal oxide materials can be easily integrated into hybrid 3D networks that offer new structure-dependent electronic and optical features for advanced nanoelectronics and nanophotonics. These smart nanomaterials in hybrid complex forms exhibit the ability to reliably respond to any external stimuli (e.g., heat, force, electric field, light, gases, biological molecules) which enables their potential use in advanced technologies.
