    Reactions of nickel cluster ions, Ni[sub n][sup +] (n=3-11), with methanol molecules, CH[sub 3]OH, were studied at collision energies less than 1.0 eV by use of a tandem-type mass spectrometer. It was found that size-dependent chemisorption, demethanation and carbide formation of CH[sub 3]OH...

    Electron or photon irradiation of H2O adsorbed on the surface of rare gas solids induces the desorption of protonated water clusters, (H2O)nH+. The yield and the size n distribution of cluster ions depend on the coverage, the deposition temperature of the water, and the thickness of the rare gas...

    The results of a systematic study of the spectra shifts of the S1–S0 transition in phenylacetylene (PA) [1B2(1Lb)←1A1(1A)] due to solvation by NH3 are reported based on two-photon REMPI. A unique aspect of the present work is comparison of the red shifts for clusters produced by...

    The Glauber theory description of particle– and nucleus–crystal Coulomb interactions at high energy is developed. The allowance for the lattice thermal vibrations is shown to produce a strong absorption effect, which is of prime importance for quantitative understanding of the...

    We have studied the charging of dust particles in a dense photoresonant sodium plasma with electron and ion densities as high as 1016cm–3 produced by laser pumping of the resonance level of Na, which was a small admixture (up to 1%) in an argon buffer gas. We show that the charge of dust...

    A method of statistical calculation of parameters of averaged individual collision cascades formed by cluster ions composed of a small number of atoms is suggested.

    The photoionization efficiency spectra of nickel clusters containing adsorbed ammonia have been recorded near threshold. Ionization potentials (IPs) have been assigned for 97 selected Nin(NH3)m species, with n up to 56 atoms. We observe that nickel cluster IPs decrease upon ammonia adsorption,...
