Abstract

The method of angular resolved elastic scattering has been used to achieve a size selection of neutral sodium clusters. After the scattering process the clusters are ionized by single photon ionization with various laser energies and detected by a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The elastic scattering of Na2 by Ne serves as a test for the experimental setup. Angular dependence of scattered sodium clusters ionized with 308 nm shows a significant amount of fragmentation of the neutral Na6 to Na9 clusters which are observed in the Na 5 + and Na 6 + ion channels.
