How harmonic is dipole resonance of metal clusters?

Abstract

We discuss the degree of anharmonicity of dipole plasmon resonances in metal clusters. We employ the time-dependent variational principle and show that the relative shift of the second phonon scales as N−4/3 in energy, N being the number of particles. This scaling property coincides with that for nuclear giant resonances. Contrary to the previous study… (More)
