Mixed-dimensional heterostructures formed by stacking materials of different dimensionality offer diverse multi-functionality that cannot be otherwise obtained by pure 0D, 1D, 2D, or 3D materials. The discontinuous changes in the energy-dependence of the density of states and the degree of electrostatic screening across mixed-dimensional heterointerfaces substantially alter electrical, magnetic, optical, and thermal properties, thereby presenting new and/or improved performance in applied technologies. This special issue will present the latest research results for mixed-dimensional heterostructures including synthesis, characterization, theory, and applications in electronics, photonics, photovoltaics, batteries, and sensors.
