A review of recent data on surface modification with beams of gas cluster ions is given. Damage, implantation, and surface erosion with 5-30 kV cluster ions of Ar and CO2 are discussed in the context of earlier results obtained at higher energies. It is concluded that gas cluster ion beams may find new interesting applications for very shallow implantation, amorphization and surface smoothing.
