"Atomic Clusters: From Gas Phase to Deposited" brings together a series of chapters, prepared by acknowledged experts in their fields. Both fundamental and practical aspects are addressed of the physics and chemistry of a novel state of matter, namely clusters of small numbers of atoms of nanometre dimensions. This is a field of nanoscience that existed before the word was invented, but has particularly achieved major advances in the recent years. It contains contributions from leading experts in solid surfaces research. The cluster science is concerned with the properties of materials on the nano-metre scale and brings together work on both free (gas-phase) clusters and those deposited on surfaces.
