Using extensive, unbiased searches based on density-functional theory, we explore the structural evolution of Cu(n) clusters over the size range n=8-20. For n=8-16, the optimal structures are plateletlike, consisting of two layers, with the atoms in each layer forming a trigonal bonding network similar to that found in smaller, planar clusters (n<or=6).
