We present a joint theoretical and experimental investigation of the absorption spectra of silver clusters Ag(n) (4<or=n<or=22). The experimental spectra of clusters isolated in an Ar matrix are compared with the calculated ones in the framework of the time-dependent density functional theory. The analysis of the molecular transitions indicates that the(More)
We report absorption spectra for Ag(7), Ag(9), and Ag(11) in an argon matrix grown at a temperature of 28 K and compare them with previous spectra of the same species measured in matrices of argon grown at lower temperatures as well as in neon matrices. We discuss the discrepancies in the light of the matrix crystallinity and show that this leads to an(More)
