Comprehensive study of sodium, copper, and silver clusters over a wide range of sizes 2<or=N<or=75.

Abstract

The geometric and electronic structures of Na(N), Cu(N), and Ag(N) metal clusters are systematically studied based on the density functional theory over a wide range of cluster sizes 2<or=N<or=75. A remarkable similarity is observed between the optimized geometric structures of alkali and noble metal clusters over all of the calculated cluster sizes N. The… (More)
