Gas-phase oxygen-rich iron oxide clusters Fe(O2)n(+) (n = 1-6), are produced in a molecular beam apparatus. Their stability and structure are investigated by measuring the fragmentation cross-sections from collision-induced-dissociation experiments. For this purpose, two different techniques have been employed. The first one relies on the measurement of the fragments resulting after collisional activation and subsequent dissociation of mass selected cluster ions in a molecular beam passing… CONTINUE READING
