Nanoclusters, owing to their unusual chemical and physical properties, are much sought after in optoelectronics, electromagnetic sensors, and in many biological applications. Synthesizing of uniform cluster size, however, is not easy in many cluster source generators; This thesis proposes a methodology of parameter variation to optimize the desired size cluster so as to obtain uniform and narrow cluster distribution in a typical plasma gas condensation type cluster source. Theoretical modeling of parameters affecting the cluster growth is analyzed for silicon, copper, and cadmium sulphide, and it is experimentally verified by determining distribution of cluster sizes.
