Clusters and crystals at the nanometer scale offer unique electrical, optical, and magnetic properties that are related to their quantum size effect. A nanocluster could contain several tens to thousands of atoms or molecules, and the formation of well-ordered and uniform size metal or semiconductor nanoclusters has been visualized by scanning tunneling microscopy.
