This talk describes our recent research on nanowires. We introduce the oxide-assisted growth (OAG) as a general method for producing silicon nanowires, as well as a range of other nanostructures (wires, cables, chain, ribbons, etc). The nanowires have been assembled to form a nanowire lattice or fiber as well as designed to form a new system. We have developed the techniques to probe the properties of nanostructures. The single-nanowire measurements correlate the properties (electronic and optical) and the structure of individual nanowires. The nanowires have been systematically characterized and shown to have high potential for applications. The available preparation and advanced techniques as well as the wide range of interesting properties underscore nanowires as exciting nanomaterials for fundamental research and technological applications.
