Cluster Ion-Solid Interactions: Theory, Simulation, and Experiment provides an overview of various concepts in cluster physics and related topics in physics, including the fundamentals and tools underlying novel cluster ion beam technology. The material is based on the author's highly regarded courses at Kyoto University, Purdue University, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute as well as his research results on cluster ion beam applications at Kyoto University.

The author introduces the basic principles of statistical physics and thermodynamics before covering applications, experimental justifications, and practical implementations. He describes classical nucleation theory and explains the drawbacks of this theory, showing how accurate modeling and simulations are necessary to justify theoretical approaches and simplifications.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book fulfills a great need in the growing field of cluster ion physics, giving a timely overview of the theory, simulation, and experimental methods. I highly recommend it to students, instructors, and practitioners in the field."
-Genri E. Norman, Dr. Habilitus, Joint Institute for High Temperatures of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (State University)

"Professor Insepov's theoretical insights and modeling have illuminated, visualized, predicted, and guided research in the field for many years, and this book will be a key resource for understanding complex phenomena such as the lateral sputtering effect of high velocity clusters impacting on surfaces."
-Dr. David R. Swenson, Principal Scientist, Passport Systems, Inc.

"This book is an enthusiastic presentation of fundamental physical principles and mathematical tools lying behind the new cluster ion beam technology ... The book explains the basic principles and fundamentals of cluster nucleation, formation, and growth in various media, including adsorption layers on the surfaces, in rarefied and dense gases, as well as on various applications of cluster ion beams for surface cleaning and etching and implantation. By explaining the process, it builds a bridge between the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics and physical kinetics with the new physical and engineering cluster applications. ... I believe that the author can be confident that there will be many grateful readers who will gain a broader perspective of the disciplines of cluster science and applications as a result of his efforts."
-From the Foreword by Ahmed Hassanein, Paul L. Wattelet Distinguished Professor and Head of Nuclear Engineering, Purdue University
