Copper doping of small gold cluster cations: influence on geometric and electronic structure.


The effect of Cu doping on the properties of small gold cluster cations is investigated in a joint experimental and theoretical study. Temperature-dependent Ar tagging of the clusters serves as a structural probe and indicates no significant alteration of the geometry of Au(n) (+) (n = 1-16) upon Cu doping. Experimental cluster-argon bond dissociation… (More)
