This book deals with nanoclusters and nanostructured surfaces of various materials of significant importance in the broad areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Leading scientists from around the world have contributed to different research topics. The chapters cover both experimental and theoretical studies and range from silicon carbide nanoclusters to chemical vapor deposition of clusters on surfaces. The diverse topics such as nanotubes, nanowires, nanoclusters, nanoparticles, nanocrystals, hybrid nanostrucures, nanostructured magnetic materials and surfaces, device applications, density functional study, and ab initio calculations are simultaneously relevant and important to scientists in the pure sciences and engineering.
