Photofragmentation and Stability in Semiconductor Microcluster Ions

  • Louis A. Bloomfield

Abstract

Details of current photofragmentation experiments and theory in the semiconductor materials (principally C, Si, Ge, and GaAs) are discussed. The observed dissociation behaviors of semiconductor cluster ions, particularly of carbon and silicon, are substantially in agreement with the current theories for their structures and binding energies. The principal experimental “magic” cluster sizes (C3, Si 6 + Si 10 + , and Si 10 - ) have also been found to be relatively stable in a variety of theoretical studies.
