III-V nanowires have shown great promises in the recent years thanks to the ability to control their dimensions, position, doping and to design heterostructures, both axially and laterally. This makes them an important tool to study fundamental nanoscale phenomena and open new possibilities for future electronic and optoelectronic devices.

From the growth point of view, even if the Vapor Liquid Solid mechanism leading to the formation of nanowires is known since 1964 [1], the chemistry around them is mainly unknown. With the development of new advanced lithography techniques it is now possible to perfectly control the nanoscale environment around the nanowires, which lead to a better understanding of crucial growth mechanisms [2].

With the integration of nanowires on silicon new possibilities also emerge to combine both III-V semiconductors and the silicon platform. Finally, advanced devices using nanowires emerged recently leading for example to the detection of first hints of the Majorana fermion [3].
