Smart era urgently demands small-size, low-energy consuming and multi-functional devices which can satisfy versatile application scenarios, including autonomous systems, wireless sensor networks, biomedical equipment, wearable gadgets, and the Internet of Things. This overwhelming trend has drawn much attention and stimulate intensive collaborative efforts spanning diverse fundamental and applied research related to energy generation-harvesting-storage-management-application at the small scale. For instance, on one hand, novel nanomaterials and chemistry properties need to be developed for efficient energy conversion. On the other hand, advanced micro-/nanofabrication technologies are desired to bring novel strategies for improving areal energy harvesting/storage performance and integration efficiency. With this regard, this special issue invites researchers to contribute insightful discussions and summaries of recent progresses on “nano energy materials and devices for miniaturized electronics and smart systems”.
