23 in the "Challenges and Advances in Computational Chemistry and Physics”
series, the book is separated into two parts. First, the "Binary Clusters”
section focuses on recent developments in experimental techniques, while the
subsequent sections cover a variety of theoretical approaches. The book is
aimed at professionals and students working in cluster science.
to Boggavarapu, the field of atomic clusters continues to attract great
interest amongst physicists and chemists alike. "This is in part due to their
intrinsic properties and potential industrial applications,” he said.
chapter he co-authored, "Growth Pattern and Size-Dependent Properties of Lead
Chalcogenide Nanoclusters,” discusses the growth patterns from atoms to bulk
state and the formation of baby-cystals from clusters, and most specifically,
the structural evolution of lead chalcogenide nanoclusters, and how various
properties of these clusters are investigated using different experimental
