# Photoelectron spectra of aluminum cluster anions: Temperature effects and ab initio simulations

@article{Akola1999PhotoelectronSO, title={Photoelectron spectra of aluminum cluster anions: Temperature effects and ab initio simulations}, author={Jaakko Akola and Matti Manninen and Hannu Hakkinen and Uzi Landman and Xi Li and Lai‐Sheng Wang}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={1999}, volume={60} }

Photoelectron(PES) spectra from aluminum cluster anions, Aln- (12 < n < 15), at various temperature regimes, were studied using ab initio molecular dynamics simulations and experimentally. The calculated PES spectra, obtained via shifting of the simulated electronic densities of states by the self-consistently determined values of the asymptotic exchange-correlation potential, agree well with the measured ones, allowing reliable structural assignments and theoretical estimation of the clusters…

An analysis of the density of states of representatives of the different structural motifs shows that the electronic structure is strongly influenced by the cluster geometry, and that a clear jelliumlike electron shell structure is present only in some exceptional cases.
