    Ultraviolet photoelectron spectra for W[sub n]N[sub 2][sup -] (n=1–8) clusters produced by addition of atomic and molecular nitrogen on W anion clusters are presented. Evidence is provided that molecular chemisorption of N[sub 2] is more stable than the dissociative one on tungsten anion...

    The experimentally observed large difference in the depths of hydrogen and helium clusters formed in tungsten still lacks a fundamental explanation. Using density functional theory calculations, molecular dynamics simulations, and kinetic Monte Carlo calculations, we show that the fundamental...

    We propose a model for the simultaneous diffusion-limited growth of two clusters A and B, where the growth of one cluster screens the growth of the other one. We consider the possibility that the A and B clusters can penetrate into each other in course of their growth in different spatial...

    Collisions between vapor monomers and small clusters may create short-lived states that will decay before undergoing equilibriating collisions with other (vapor or gas) molecules. As the vapor pressure (and hence the number of monomer–cluster collisions) increases, the number of such...

    On the basis of the supermultiplet potential model for the interaction of extremely light clusters (formalism of Young diagrams), it is explained why the d + t system does not feature a (½)[sup +] (L = 0) level allied to (3/2)[sup +] (L = 0) thermonuclear resonance. By using known data on the...

    A non-steady-state solution of the Zel'dovich equation for the cluster size distribution function has been obtained. The solution is applicable in the entire range of cluster sizes. The relaxation time of the quasisteady-state distribution and the partial time lags of cluster formation were...

    The Harris–Aharony criterion for a static model predicts that if a specific heat exponent α > 0, then this model does not exhibit self-averaging. In the two-dimensional percolation model, the index α = –1/2. This means that, in accordance with the Harris–Aharony...

    The number of clusters, N, formed in nucleation-growth processes in first-order phase transformations, and their average size, , at the end of the stage of independent growth of the supercritical clusters are determined analytically. It is shown that the number of clusters, N, depends only on...
