Theoretical studies on the Ge n Si m clusters have been carried out using advanced ab initio approaches. The lowest energy isomers were determined for the clusters with compositions n+m=2-5. All possible isomers arising due to permutations of Ge and Si atoms were investigated. The L-shaped structure for the trimers, tetragonal with diagonal bond for… CONTINUE READING
