AuSin − (n = 4−12) clusters were produced with a laser vaporization source and investigated by photoelectron spectroscopy. The swarm-intelligence-based CALYPSO structure search method and ab initio calculations were employed to determine their ground-state structures. The results revealed that the most stable isomers of AuSin − (n = 4−12) cluster anions are… CONTINUE READING
