This reference on cluster physics in materials science draws upon the author's unrivalled experience in plasma science.
He covers in detail electromagnetic effects, cluster motion and growth, as well as aerosols, providing the knowledge instrumental for an understanding of nanostructure formation.
Around 400 case studies enable readers to directly relate the methods to their own individual tasks or projects.
