Nanowire heterostructures offer many functional advantages over planar systems. In this chapter, we review some of the most popular synthesis methods for axial, radial, and branched nanowire heterostructures, followed by a survey of their use in optoelectronic and spintronic applications. Hybrid schemes involving metals or dielectric for enhancing the optoelectronic figures of merit are also explored in a limited context. We conclude the chapter with a discussion on future issues that remain to be investigated.
