The nanostructured materials play a significant role in the technological progress of photonic and optical applications. More photonic applications are based on functional nanostructures. The investigation on nonlinear properties are great importance in the photonic device fabrication. This chapter elaborates the functional nanomaterials and their properties for photonic applications.
