Study of NH stretching vibrations in small ammonia clusters by infrared spectroscopy in He droplets and ab initio calculations.

Infrared spectra of the NH stretching vibrations of (NH3)n clusters (n = 2-4) have been obtained using the helium droplet isolation technique and first principles electronic structure anharmonic calculations. The measured spectra exhibit well-resolved bands, which have been assigned to the nu1, nu3, and 2nu4 modes of the ammonia fragments in the clusters… CONTINUE READING
