How useful can ring shaped nano and micro crystals be in materials science?

Can molecular crystals of nano or micro dimensions with a ring shaped morphology (doughnut-shaped) be useful in the study of certain phenomena in materials science?

    I imagine they could serve as temperature isolators in solid interfaces, as due to its morphology, vibrations would get scattered by themselves, neutralizing the wave propagation.

    Yes, for example as resonator for lasers if transparent or as elctronic quantum device (interferometer,..),if conductive.
