    We have measured the photoabsorption spectra of mass selected Ar+n clusters, n=3–40, from 355–1064 nm. The smaller clusters, n<15, display a visible photoabsorption spectrum similar to Ar+3, i.e., a broad, intense band peaking near 520 nm. From n=15–20 this photoabsorption...

    A series of hard-sphere cluster-ion structures have been constructed, based on the notion of a central stable dimer ion core. Starting from a structure representative of icosahedral Ar+19, two separate packing sequences are considered; edge packing and face packing, and clusters containing up to...

    Metastable Ar+2 (Ar+2 →Ar++Ar) has been observed in a double-focusing mass spectrometer from ions created by 70 eV electron bombardment of an Ar cluster beam. New ground and excited state potential energy curves have been calculated for Ar+2, and these have been used to show that...

    The photoabsorption spectra of argon cluster ions, Ar[SUP+,SUBn] are calculated for n = 4 to 25. The internal motion of the cluster is accounted for by the molecular dynamics method. The diatomics-in-molecules (DIM) potential energy surface is used for the calculation. There are basically two...

    The average kinetic energy released during the unimolecular decomposition of argon ion clusters has been measured as a function of cluster size from Ar+5 up to Ar+24. Although there are considerable uncertainties in the experimental data, when compared with an RRKM model the results do suggest...

    In secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) of organic samples, damages induced by the primary ions are crucial. The mass of intact ions (secondary ions not dissociated) currently detectable is only as high as the 1,000 Da at best, which prevents the technique from being extended to apply to...
