Abstract: Oxide and metal hybrid nanostructures is a very well researched subject today, and demonstrations of their synthesis, properties and applications are extensive. However, their well-controlled fabrication on a nanoscale level is still limited, and the lack of synthesis techniques that combine fabrication precision with high throughput, poses great challenges to the large-scale use of nanomaterials. This work relates to the development of new preparation processes with an aim to resolve some of the existing issues related to nanostructure mass-fabrication. We adopt the use of chemical and physical nanostructuring approaches for the creation of nanostructures with complex architecture, and for size-reduction in order to achieve nanoscale dimensions. Finally, we perform systematic characterization and demonstrate potential applications in order to demonstrate the unique properties of these nanostructures of this work.
