Buffer layers composed of weakly bound atoms or molecules on solid surfaces are discussed as a versatile
platform for size controlled growth of nano-clusters and for patterning of thin metallic films. Metallic
nano-crystals can be prepared and their size and density be controlled by varying the film thickness. Cold
metallic or oxide clusters, softly land and deposit on solid substrates via the Buffer Layer Assisted Growth
