The process of bringing out a special section for Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology started with Dr. H. S. Nalwa inviting to bring out a special section on topic related to solar cells. During the course of discussion we came upon the topic of “functional nanomaterials for solar cells.” The purpose of this special section of Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is to summarize the recent developments in this important research field. Therefore, original research articles, short communications and review articles were invited on all types of functional nonomaterials associated with solar cells. Upon receiving the invitation several authors were kind enough to accept to contribute. Finally, the special section is being published with forty-two manuscripts, out of which four are review articles. The topics are focused on nanoscience and nanotechnology aspects of solar cells covering synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, properties, and applications of all types of nanomaterials in solar cells involving photodiodes, photodetectors, photoelectrochemical, etc. The research topics include nanofabrication and processing, manipulation, computational simulation, nanomachining, structure analysis, applications in nanoelectronics, nanooptics and nanophotonics using all kinds of materials which are parts of solar cell (absorber materials, buffer layers, transparent conducting oxide, up-conversion, down conversion materials, back and front contact, etc.).
