Abstract

Magnetic, electronic and structural properties of transition metals and their alloys are a challenging subject of research in pure and applied solid state physics1. Considerable effort has been made in order to create and understand new transition metal alloys, surfaces, heterostructures and small particles. From this point of view the study of transition metal clusters plays a key-role in bridging the gap between the “molecular” and “bulk” description of transition metal magnetism. Furthermore nanoparticles show unexpected magnetic phenomena and can be the first step for the development of new materials with tailored magnetic properties2.
