Abstract: Helium nanodroplets provide a cold and confined environment that offers many possibilities for the formation and investigation of clusters and nanoparticles. Here we present a review describing the fundamental properties of helium droplets and address in particular their application to and importance in the study of clusters and nanoparticles. We highlight several key experiments on atomic and molecular clusters and then turn our attention to very recent work on using helium droplets for nanoparticle synthesis. Finally, we look to the future and consider some areas where the growth of new nanoparticles via this route may be beneficial.
