Atomic clusters can be considered as inorganic substances in nano-scale like inorganic nanoparticles, but with well-defined structures, sizes and compositions. Hence, atomic clusters are molecular models to study and to understand the surface structures of nano-materials as well as bulk solids. The functional materials assembled from the clusters may combine the advantages of both nano-materials and molecular materials.

Key words: Atomic clusters, Nano-materials, Structure
