Through the efforts of the researchers devoted over the last decade, unprecedented advances have been made in developing nanoscale materials and devices with novel functions. Through nanoscale fabrications, elemental blocks of various characteristics are integrated and organized on a designed stage to produce desired or new functions in a system on the macroscopic scale (Figure 34.1). However, with the reduction in the size of structures, differences in electronic properties, for example, that due to the structural nonuniformity in each element, has an even more crucial effect on macroscopic functions.
